Green space is important and vital for community health and success!
Last month, California State Parks announced $548.3M in grants for over 100+ communities to build parks & community space.
I'm proud to have been a leader on the legislation that led to these grants.
This included $13.8M for #AD63
Cudahy received $6.9M for Cudahy Park renovations, which includes constructing a new performing arts stage, outdoor gym, walking/jogging path, splash pads, picnic area, new lighting and shade throughout the park. Paramount received over $890 thousand for Dills Park improvements. This includes new walking trails, public art, restrooms, landscaping and a gated parking lot with lighting and security cameras. South Gate received over $4M for Hollydale Community Park renovations, which includes a new community center, outdoor gathering spaces, turf lawn with movie screen, playground, water play, picnic areas, parking and new lighting. South Gate also gets $1.9M for the Urban Orchard Project. This will construct wetlands, a new community recreation center, jogging/walking path, picnic area, shade structures, a community garden, artwork, and much more.
I'm excited to see these projects come to life. Green and community spaces are important and #AD63 deserves them.
