Recreation & Parks Commission Review

On July 18, 2019, the Recreation & Parks Commission voted unanimously to support the Memorial Park Master Plan layout and programmatic concepts with recommendations for consideration during the design and implementation phase. The Commission recommended that the project team consider:

  • a premier California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) baseball field

  • keeping an off-leash dog run at the park

  • the loss of parking on 16th Street

  • inclusion of elements such as bullpens, warm up areas, dugouts, seating, PA systems, and score booths

  • clustering the proposed outdoor fitness equipment

  • the tree canopy, relocation of existing trees, and new planting of trees where possible

  • shade for the playground

  • aspects of sun and shade affecting players’ vision in determining position of the fields

  • further analysis of natural turf vs. synthetic turf

  • starting design and construction of phase one at the earliest possible date
