Chino Community Services Commission to Name New Park

Chino Community Services Commission to Name New Park

At its meeting on September 28, the City of Chino Community Services Commission will consider and recommend to the City Council a name for the new park being built at the corner of Central Avenue and Phillips Boulevard.  The Commission invites suggestions and input from the public.  The meeting takes place in the Chino Council Chambers and via teleconference at 7:00 p.m.

The park is being developed with a $2,858,075 state grant awarded to the City in March 2020, as part of the 2018 Parks Bond Act Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalizations program (SPP) Proposition 68 grant. 

The Community Services Department held a series of six community-based planning workshops between March and June of 2019.  Many residents participated and provided ideas and input.  Conceptual plans were designed based on input, and participants voted on a design that best met the priorities and desires established.  Plans include an all-inclusive playground, outdoor fitness stations, walking trails, two pickle ball courts, picnic shelter, restroom, open space, City of Chino monument, public art, drought tolerant landscape design, and a parking lot.

The project is in the design phase and a construction date has not been set yet.  For more information on the project, please call (909) 334-3256.
