Public project to demolish all existing park facilities and recreational equipment on-site and construct new lighted multi-sport playing fields and courts, restrooms, a picnic area, and a maintenance building. The approximately 12.5-acre project site includes Columbus Park in San José and an undeveloped parcel located to the east of the park. The project would also reconfigure Irene, Asbury, and Walnut Streets as a one-directional perimeter access roads, construct a new parking lot on the eastern project boundary, temporarily close Spring Street between Asbury and West Taylor Street, and construct a new pedestrian paseo in its place. As a part of the park redevelopment, the park will be renamed Janet Gray Hayes Park.
