OC River Walk 

Anaheim River Walk View 1

The OC River Walk is the City of Anaheim's vision to transform the Santa Ana River Corridor into a primary connective open space uniting the Southern California region. There are many opportunities along the river to increase public recreation, enhance the aesthetics and ecology of the river, and improve visual and physical access to the river. 

The City recently completed the OC River Walk Engineering Feasibility Study, which can be accessed by clicking here. The study identified 17 opportunities on the Santa Ana River for active transportation connections and community amenities such as parks, plazas, and art.

Boysen Park Refresh

Boysen Park Master Plan_FINAL

Boysen Park is getting a Refresh! 

Since October of 2022 we've held several community meetings to talk about how we will invest $15 million in state funding at Boysen Park. The funding will allow us to refresh and expand the iconic park by roughly 2.5 acres.

At our most recent meeting on March 14th, we presented the Final Master Plan to the community. The Master Plan is a culmination of five months of outreach meetings and community feedback. 

Some of the new and updated amenities include: basketball courts, skate park, play areas, shaded picnic areas, refurbished baseball and softball fields, soccer fields, water play spray zone, obstacle or ninja course, fitness equipment, a dog park, and more.

Rio Vista Park Improvements

Rio Vista Restroom

The restroom building at Rio Vista Park is over 40 years old and in desperate need of replacement. This project will demolish the existing park restroom building and replace it with a new ADA compliant restroom that is safe, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing. The project also includes a new stand-alone shade structure and upgraded adjacent hardscape. This project is being funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

We are currently in the early planning stage and will update the website with invitations, updated designs, and other information as it is available.
