Ramon Garcia Park Gets a $400,000 Facelift in Time for Summer Program

Ramon Garcia Park SNL Ribbon Cutting

Proud to announce that Ramon Garcia Park, which is part of the Summer Night Lights anti-gang youth program that got under way Wednesday, has received some significant upgrades. Working with Rec and Parks and the Bureau of Engineering, I helped bring $400,000 in improvements to the park, including newly resurfaced outdoor and indoor basketball courts; new basketball court backboards; a new state-of-the-art baseball scoreboard; new grills and bleachers; a newly resurfaced parking lot; a newly resurfaced concrete walk way around the childcare center, and an additional shade structure and improved lighting, which will make it easier to participate in activities while creating a safer environment for kids to play in. The funding was through Prop K and is part of my effort to improve parks throughout my district, which has led to millions of dollars in improvements since I’ve taken office. There’s definitely more to come!
