HARD is partnering with The Trust for Public Land (TPL) to design the new 1.43-acre neighborhood park in Ashland with community input. The project has been awarded funding from the Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Grant Program- Round 4 (Prop 68) in the amount of $7,082,000.
This is one of three adjoining acquisitions for the Ashland area, along with adjoining property fronting onto East 14th St. and a new community center, as part of a collaboration with RCD Housing.
The park planning and community outreach process kicked off in fall 2020 and included the following efforts:
Through the process, the community expressed their vision for the park to attract a multi-generation of users. The community’s preferences include trees and green space, terrace seating, a gathering area for a variety of group sizes, quiet space for outdoor study, a pathway loop, play areas for young children, places for teens, a multipurpose court, workout stations, and lighting for safety and security.
The preferred concept plan was developed based on the community input and presented to the board and the community on January 19, 2021.
