California State Parks has awarded the City of Eureka’s 20/30 Park with $6,393,200 for park improvements.

The conceptual design above is a direct result of community feedback and engagement.

 

 California State Parks received 478 applications requesting $2.3 billion in funding. With only $254.9 million available, only 62 projects were funded, making Eureka very fortunate to receive this competitive grant. In 2018, California voters passed Prop 68, which directed $254.9 million to State Parks for competitive grants to create new parks and enhance recreational opportunities for all Californians. This is the state’s largest investment in grant funding history targeted for underserved communities and the City of Eureka is excited to announce major improvements planned due to this generous funding opportunity.

 Planned park improvements are based on a robust community engagement process where community members shared concerns regarding safety, access, walkability, recreational amendments, and inclusion.

The 20/30 Park Project reflects major renovation plans including:

  • Construction of a new volleyball court
  •  Basketball/roller hockey court
  • Pickleball/tennis court
  • Open space field
  • Inclusive playground for ages 0-5
  • Inclusive playground for ages 5-12
  • Fitness stations
  • Picnic area
  • ADA multi-use path
  • Restroom building
  • Concessions/storage building
  • Three parking lots
  • Landscaping and lighting throughout the park
  • Jacob Haney Ball Field
    • Renovation of bleachers, scorer's table, dugouts and drainage
    • New automated irrigation
    • Parking improvements

We want YOUR Input to Re-imagine & Revitalize 20/30 Park

The City of Eureka is excited to announce its application for the Prop 68: Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Program. This funding opportunity helps fund park projects in critically under-served communities. The city is working hard to improve all city parks with the focus of this grant application being to revitalize 20/30 Park, located at 2605 Pine Street.

WE would like to you to be part of the process, you are invited to join us for two planned community meetings this month:

- Pacific View Charter School Auditorium -115 Henderson St., Eureka April 11th, 2019 6pm-8pm
- Lincoln School Cafeteria – 216 W. Harris St., Eureka April 30th, 2019 6pm-8pm

Both of these meetings will be an opportunity for you to share your thoughts about how we can re-imagine and revitalize this neighborhood park.
