In October 2022, we held a community meeting to talk about how we will invest $15 million in state funding at Boysen Park.
The funding will allow us to refresh and even expand the iconic park by roughly 2.5 acres.
We are still in the planning stages and welcome additional community input about what a park refresh would look like for neighborhood residents.
Help us make Boysen Park better!
We have been holding community input meetings. Please check back for updates for follow Anaheim Community Services on Facebook.
Baseball, softball fields closure
Boysen Park baseball and softball fields remain temporarily closed for soil cleanup after testing in some areas of the fields showed samples of lead. We have a cleanup plan under review and are working thoughtfully and diligently to get the fields reopened as soon as possible.
The plan includes removal of old soil and replacement with fresh soil.
We expect approval of the plan from our state partners by November 2022, which will give us the green light to hire a contractor to do the work.
Pending any setbacks, our hope is to have the fields open for the 2023 spring baseball and softball seasons.
The playgrounds, picnic areas, open grassy field, southwest soccer field, tennis courts and remaining areas on the north and south sides of Boysen Park are unimpacted and remain open.
We never like to see our park spaces close, and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue our work to reopen them.
