Park Trails Improvement Program

Boardwalk TrailSoon, hikers and recreational enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy new and improved hiking trails throughout our beautiful city. Voters approved the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond which allocated $4 million to the Park Trail Improvement Program. Prior to 2012 voters approved the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond which included the Park Trail Improvement Program, which was allocated $5 million for the restoration of recreational trails, protection of our natural resources, development of trail networks, and improvement of overall trail safety. Miles and miles of safe and renovated paths to explore are now being created and improved!

Completed Improvements

Since the summer of 2008, we’ve been busy prioritizing the areas of greatest need in parks and open spaces, and we’re thrilled to have many of our restoration programs now underway. Trail improvements have been completed at Billy Goat Hill, Grand View Park, Corona Heights, and Glen Canyon Park. Residents of the following parks can look forward to improved trails running through their area soon:
