About the Project
This project is 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 will focus improvements on an area no larger than 2,500 sq. ft. Based on discussions held at a May 18, 2016 North Highlands Civic Association meeting, the goal is to enhance the appearance of the park entrance and provide amenities and beautification.
About the Process
Construction on McCoy Park is now complete and the public is welcome to enjoy the park.
A few planting projects and the installation of chairs remain before we determine a ribbon cutting date. Sign up for updates below so you don't miss a thing!
Update: The final project design was adjusted to fit within budget. As a result, the interactive chalk art plaza and the discovery path stepping stones were removed from the contract. View the final concept plan and amenities here or in the image gallery.
