La Plata Park & Marina Hills Park
The Playground Replacement Projects at La Plata Park and Marina Hills Park are focused on the renovation of the playground equipment and surfacing within the existing playground areas at each park location.
The La Plata Park and Marina Hills Park Playground Rehabilitation Projects were under construction in early 2020 when they were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The new playground equipment was procured by the City, but was not installed by the contractor when the projects were halted. Currently, the playground equipment is stored on City property.
The City has actively pursued a grant to pay a significant portion of the remaining costs. The City Council adopted Resolution No. 2020-1348 on December 15, 2020 to approve a grant application for Per Capita Grant Funds from the California Department of Parks and Recreation. The City's grant application to the California Department of Parks and Recreation requests that the City's grant funding allocation be applied toward the installation of park playground equipment at La Plata Park and Marina Hills Park.

In addition, the City's required 20% funding match will now be funded by American Rescue Plan funds since the projects were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The projects will be completed in Fiscal Year 2021-22 and is on the Park and Recreation Commission's prioritized playground replacement plan. The City has advertised bids and the construction contract award is now pending. Construction is expected to begin in Janurary 2022, and the project will be completed in June 2022.
