The remainder of the Mission Playground Renovation project is nearing completion this summer. In May, Area 1 which includes the new water play feature, play area and art fence along Valencia Street, and the soccer field, tennis and basketball court re-opened to the public. The water feature has been a very popular and attractive addition to the neighborhood. Area 2 which will be complete later this summer includes the renovated Clubhouse with a new and more functional interior layout; the renovated interior playground featuring sand and new safety play surfacing; a new interior courtyard with shade trees, a vine covered shade structure and new seating and tables; and renovated walkways, plantings and lawn area at the 19th Street entry. Stay tuned for the announcement of a ribbon cutting event to celebrate the completion of this 2008 parks bond funded renovation project.
