Peter Marshall Kaboom! Playgrounds

IMG_9337Peter Marshall Park is getting two new playgrounds on Dec. 9! The old playgrounds were more than 20 years old and in need of replacement.

Thanks to the support of the Anaheim Ducks, we're bringing to life the ultimate playground visions of neighborhood kids. 

The playground is sponsored by the Anaheim Ducks and it's being built in partnership with Kaboom! and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Anaheim-Cypress.

During our playground design day on Sept. 28, we asked the community what they wanted to see in their new playground. The feedback from nearly 100 children and dozens of community members helped us to develop the playground design shown above.

The next step is to build the playground! 

Please sign up to help between Dec. 6 and 9 to prepare and build the new playground. This is a free and fun community volunteer event and everyone is welcome! Breakfast and lunch will be provided. And the Anaheim Ducks Street Team will bring the energy and fun on build day, Dec. 9!

OC River Walk 

11x17 River walk_01_small

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 activity, enhance the aesthetics and ecology of the river, and improve 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.

In summer 2023, the city received federal funding for five bridges that will improve connections to and around OC River Walk, including around OC Vibe and Honda Center. 

Included in our plans for OC River Walk is a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists that will cross over the Santa Ana River and connect Anaheim and Orange.

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 ways to invest $15 million in state funding at Boysen Park. The funding will help us refresh and expand the iconic park by roughly 2.5 acres.

At a community meeting on March 14, we presented the final master plan. 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.

Little Pine Park is small in size and big on potential.

You can find this future park tucked between a neighborhood and the Interstate 5 (Santa Ana) freeway.

Plans for the park include pine trees, picnic tables, butterfly attracting shrubs and space for families and kids to gather and play.

Rio Vista Park Improvements

Rio Vista Restroom

The restroom building at Rio Vista Park is more than 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 shade structure and upgraded hardscape. This project is being funded by the Community Development Block Grant program. 

The Community Services Department’s Capital Improvement Section

The Capital Improvement Section of the Community Services Department is responsible for the acquisition, master planning, design & construction of parks and trails. These projects consist of facility improvements & upgrades to existing parks and trails, as well as the development of new park land. The Capital Improvement Section also oversees development of buildings such as gymnasiums and community centers.

Capital improvements are funded by fees paid by private developers who construct new residential projects within the city of Anaheim per the Anaheim Municipal Code section 17.34. In lieu of paying a fee to the City, Developers may dedicate and develop land for parks and recreational facilities. Capital improvement projects are also funded through a variety of federal, state, and local grants.
