Projects We're Working On

Westacre Park

Renovation of the existing park site, including a potential expansion of the park onto adjacent, vacant property owned by Washington Unified School District (WUSD). Westacre Park is owned by WUSD but improved and maintained by the City. The existing park amenities include a dated skate park, basketball court, play structure without shade and turf areas used for soccer and other sports. As part of its facility and budget planning efforts, WUSD has offered additional property located immediately adjacent to the park site for a potential park expansion. The additional parcel currently includes a parking area, as well as empty warehouse buildings that have contributed to safety and access challenges. Potential improvements include removal of the existing warehouse buildings and expansion of the park to accommodate a renovated skate park and basketball courts, a shaded play area, walking path, on-site parking, restrooms to support athletic field use and any other improvements identified through the community engagement process. This site was identified in the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan as needing significant upgrades over the next five years to support extended recreation activity.

1504 Fallbrook Street

Exploring improving the underutilized playfields at the Fallbrook Campus for a new neighborhood park. The WUSD school site located at 1504 Fallbrook Street includes playfields that are no longer used by the school. As part of its facility and budget planning efforts, WUSD is renovating the school campus to prepare for Westmore Oaks Elementary School to return to the site and has offered the City an opportunity to explore improving the playfield portion of the site for public access. Proposed improvements to the site will be based on the outcomes of the community engagement process but could include items such as a shaded play structure, walking loop, picnic area, open playfield space and sports courts.

The Bridge District

The proposed Bridge District Plaza will create a new public park space on the Sacramento River resulting in a programable venue for social gatherings, celebrations and countless public health and wellness events. The Plaza improvements could include a hardscape viewing platform complete with interactive art, landscaping and water elements.The proposed Plaza site links directly with the River Walk Trail, which is used as a hiking and biking trail, and provides access to the Bridge District with its high-density mixed use commercial and residential development.
