Crews are hard at work at the new Fernwood Ave. Park site.
This week, they are clearing the site and removing asphalt and other materials to make way for the new landscaping and other park amenities.
When completed, the Fernwood Ave. Park be a new green space in the southside of Fernwood Avenue between State Street and Beechwood Avenue. Improvements will include landscape and irrigation, park furnishings, playground equipment, a bridge, and will include offsite improvements such as curb and gutter, crosswalks, and street lighting.
This is a project funded by the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy Grant, California Conservation Corps, Safe Clean Water Grant, and Prop C funds.
The park is scheduled to be completed Spring 2023. We’ll keep you posted on the park’s progress!
