The District has partnered with Alameda County and the Trust for Public Land to plan and develop a community park/plaza to accommodate the needs of the Ashland community.
Ashland Common has been awarded $7.3 million grant from the Statewide Parks Program – Round 3 (Proposition 68 – State of California Parks & Water Bond 2018). The SPP grant is intended to create new parks and recreational opportunities in underserved areas.
The project will include the design and construction of recreational facilities at the 1-acre site at the corner of 166th Avenue and E 14th Street in San Leandro. A series of community meetings was held in the spring of 2019 to develop a community driven design concept for the new park.
The final master plan includes a community space to accommodate recreational uses such as a multi-purpose lawn, play areas, fitness court, interactive fountain, shade trees and seating, picnic areas, and restrooms. The site can also provide dedicated space for ACSO, will be further activated with attractive functions including an outdoor stage for live entertainment, commercial space through the use of open air market structure, flexible outdoor event space, pop-up markets, and space for food trucks and mobile services.
