The Paso Robles City Council, County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Julian Crocker, city and county staff, project architects and contractors are celebrating the groundbreaking of the new Paso Robles Uptown Family Park.

Dignitaries are gathering today, Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, at 10 a.m. at the site of the new Paso Robles Uptown Family Park at 641 36th Street, one block east of Georgia Brown Elementary.

This is the next step in a process that began in February 2010 and the award of a Proposition 84 Statewide Park Development
and Community Revitalization Grant. The park is funded in full by a $2.5 million grant. The City Council recently approved the designs for the park.

“Requirements of the Proposition 84 Grant are specific in what park elements are required to fulfill the obligations of the Grant and remain eligible for full cost reimbursement,” says library and Recreation Service Director, Julie Dahlen.

“Verde Design has been diligent in bringing a creative, innovative approach to those stringent requirements and have produced a design that will provide a striking gateway to the City and benefit the community as a whole,” she says. “Moreover, all park design has been planned to incorporate the most water efficient, low maintenance effect.”
