Sunset Playground Renovation

Sunset Rec Center Conceptual Plan

Residents of the Sunset have enjoyed the recreational offerings of Sunset Playground since 1940. In response to community needs, we are dedicating nearly $14 million of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond to ensure this local treasure will continue to promote good health and community togetherness through its recreational facilities.

Strong local voice contributed to the vision and direction for the new Sunset Playground. We are working hard to make this vision a reality, starting with upgrades to the recreation center and the childrens play areas. Upon completion, these spaces will provide the community with entirely new options for fun and physical activity. In addition, we are making improvements to the parks fields and courts, aiming to please the playgrounds more sports-minded visitors. We will complete the package with the restoration of roads and pathways, upgrades to lighting and irrigation, and improvements to overall accessibility and park landscape, so that Sunset Playgrounds exterior will beautifully reflect its shiny new interior.

We look forward to unveiling the new park soon!


Sunset Playground offers nearly four-acres of recreation space to neighbors and visitors of the Sunset. It provides a large recreation center with a gymnasium, bleachers, locker rooms, and storage facilities, as well as community rooms and a ping pong room. In addition to its indoor offerings, the park features two tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, childrens play areas and a small community garden.

After years of use, the park needs repairs to its basic facilities, amenities, and landscape. Thanks to the unified efforts of the community, we will be addressing these needs and then some!
