The Dwight Murphy Field Renovation Project consists of the renovation of an existing 8.3- acre City park and includes the conversion of the existing grass regulation size soccer field to a multi-sport synthetic turf field; new 30,000-square-foot natural turf youth baseball field; new natural turf informal activity area; new 32,672-square-foot inclusive playground; new 5,067-square-foot fitness area; new 1,739-square-foot
family picnic area with shade structure; new 194-square-foot trash and recycling enclosure; and new 444-square foot prefabricated restroom facility. The project includes the demolition of the existing restroom/locker room facility, playground, ball field, and fitness area. Other amenities include pedestrian pathways, accessible pathways and entrances, a bus loading zone, gates, field and perimeter fencing, sport field lighting, pedestrian lighting, and street lights. The parking areas would be reconfigured. Onsite vehicular parking would increase from 128 spaces to 159 spaces, and 30 bicycle spaces would be provided. Parking within the right-of-way along the perimeter of the park would increase from 68 spaces to 93 spaces. Of the existing 75 trees onsite, 37 would be removed, 5 would be relocated, and 33 would be protected. A total of 125 new trees would be planted, which would result in an overall total of 163 trees for the project. Additional landscaping would be planted throughout the site. The project includes restoration of a portion of Sycamore Creek, consisting of the removal of non-native vegetation and the installation of new native plants and trees, including 10 California Sycamore and 10 Coast Live Oak trees. The project also includes improvements to vehicular circulation by preventing traffic from entering Park Road from Calle Puerto Vallarta, and reconfiguring the west parking lot.
