The City Council approved the Placentia Parks Initiative Plan on June 1, 2021, a comprehensive master list of park and building projects. Projects were prioritized by safety, age of equipment, and funding sources. City park renovation projects are either funded through State Grants, Development Impact Fees, or Measure U funding. City staff is in the process of obtaining concept designs to renovate seven (7) City Park Playgrounds within the next year, along with re-surfacing three (3) playgrounds. The City’s goal is to have every City park playground renovated within 2 to 5 years. City parks will also have new amenities such as picnic tables, barbecues, benches, water fountains, and trash/recycling receptacles for residents to enjoy!
The City is excited to announce that the playground renovation at Goldenrod Park is near completion and will reopen to the public on November 29th. Join the City for a grand re-opening ceremony at 3:30 pm at 925 Goldenrod Street. The event will unveil the new playground, and light refreshments will be served.
