Santa Anita Project

Project Description:

Santa Anita Park ProjectSynthetic turf sports fields are needed in order to increase the program time on grass fields. Experience shows if grass fields are used more than 20 hours per week they will end up as a dirt field. At Santa Anita Park we have the ability to change an existing grass field to a synthetic turf field for the community.

The Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Agency were successful in obtaining a $1 million grant to make this happen. The new synthetic field project will also include other park improvements that will help make the park patron's experience at Santa Anita Park enjoyable. Below is a project description of the proposed improvements.

The project will include:

  • Installation of a synthetic Turf Soccer/Football Field
  • Concrete Bleachers and decking
  • Shade Screen over Bleachers
  • Parking Lot Expansion
  • Renovation of Basketball Court
  • Sports and Security Lighting
  • Irrigation and Landscaping
  • Playground equipment

Santiago Gashouse

Project Description:

Santiago park gashouse projectThe project area is on the south side of Santiago Creek between Valencia Street and the existing park restroom. This area has been undeveloped for many years. The approved project will remove a portion of Valencia Street and connect this area with the existing Oak Grove picnic area. Improvements will include an outdoor natural amphitheater, renovation of the existing gashouse to include a small kitchenette for community rental, picnic facilities/tables, ADA accessible concrete walkways, decompose granite jogging trail connections, security lighting, irrigation, and landscaping. The project will also renovate the existing park restroom to relocate the doorway for better visibility to the log cabin and play equipment area.

Years ago, the community suggested improvements in this area and provided a sketch of their ideas. This did not move forward until funding became available through the California Coastal Conservancy. Meetings were held with the Santiago Neighborhood Association and the Santiago Park Committee to discuss the concept plan. The plan and estimates were submitted to the California Coastal Conservancy for grant funding. The PRCSA was successful in obtaining a $1 million dollar grant for the park development and provided additional funding from Park Development fees and Capital Outlay Funds.

The project will include:

  • Outdoor natural Amphitheater
  • Gashouse Renovation including kitchenette
  • Picnic facilities/tables
  • ADA accessible concrete walkways
  • Decompose Granite Jogging trail
