About the Project
The project enhanced the appearance of the park entrance and provide amenities and beautification. Updates included a seating deck with furnishings, a shade canopy, re-aligned sidewalks, new vegetation (such as flowering trees) with boulders, a bike rack and more!
This project was funded by the developer from FY 2012 Site Plan Ordinance for construction of the parcel (formerly Bergman’s Cleaners dry cleaning plant and now MOM’s Organic Market) for the community benefit.
To maximize available funding the Department of Parks and Recreation focused improvements on an area of 2,500 sq. ft. Based on discussions held at a May 18, 2016 North Highlands Civic Association meeting, the goal was to enhance the appearance of the park entrance and provide amenities and beautification.
Construction on the park was completed in summer 2019.
