Yvonne Burke-John D. Ham Park
In 2004, Lynwood began the process of replacing Ham Park. The Lynwood Unified School District acquired Ham Park in 2003 to begin construction of a new state of the art high school that will service 1,800 students. After receiving funding approval in the amounts of $35.9 million from the California State Allocation Board, the City undertook the Ham Park Replacement Project to construct a new 10-acre park with modern amenities, and situated in close proximity to the previous location.
The boundaries for the proposed new park are:
• The east side of Atlantic Avenue from the I-105 Freeway to mid-block between Lavinia Avenue and Clark Street; and from Atlantic Avenue frontage to Virginia Avenue.
• The west side of the park will be bounded by Atlantic Avenue between Agnes Street and Lavinia Avenue and from Atlantic Avenue frontage to the alley.
