At Long Last … Renovations at the Park View Recreation Center Get Underway

Start of the project, removing the tree at the tot lot

After many, many false starts, twists, and turns, the renovation and redesign of the open spaces at the Park View Recreation Center has finally begun. The current project was initially proposed in the late summer of 2009 and is only now moving forward. While there were many reasons for the on-again, off-again planning of this project, for many who live in the community it was seen as yet one more broken promise with little to no real intent to actually accomplish anything at Park View.

Fortunately, there were those in the community that were not willing to let this project fade into oblivion and kept the ball rolling by consistently working with Councilmember Graham and DPR Director Aguirre.

Below are some images of the work in progress, which started this week. You can also read more about the project and see the plan by going here.
