Document Description
The proposed project would result in the renovation of the entirety of the existing 11-acre park. Improvements would include relocation and upgrades to the park’s basketball courts, skate park, playgrounds/play areas, pathways, and improvements to the stormwater detention basin. The proposed project would also include installation of a splash pad (which would replace the former pool) with a new restroom and outdoor showers; stage; multipurpose field; picnic areas, tables, and shade structures; walking trails; entry plazas; park lighting; landscaping including low and medium water use turf grasses and trees; an irrigation system; and three bioretention areas. The proposed project would also include connection of the park across 9th and 10th Streets to create a continuous park space, which would result in the closure of 9th and 10th streets between Orange and Maple Avenue. Parking would include diagonal and parallel street parking areas. Other site conditions would include a new 25-foot easement with Beaumont Cherry Valley Water District along the portion of 10th Street that is within the project site, which contains existing water utility service. Overhead electrical utilities along 10th Street are being removed and the overhead fiber optic lines would be placed underground.
