Great news – the long-awaited upgrades to Poinsettia Park begin next Tuesday.
Here is an announcement we recently received from the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks:
Construction staff will be starting the park improvements at Poinsettia Recreation Center on Tuesday, July 5, 2011. They will start with the children’s play area on July 5th, and anticipate starting on the field improvements on July 25th. I just wanted to let you know these exciting projects will start moving forward…
As we reported a month ago, the park will see a host of upgrades, including a new Community Room, new playground equipment, new benches and trash receptacles, a new walking jogging/path, and new outdoor exercise equipment. Additionally, the baseball fields will be re-done, new bleachers will be installed next to the baseball fields, and the outdoor basketball courts will be re-paved and get new hoops installed.
You can check out the ongoing improvements during the big National Night Out event in the park on Tuesday, August 2, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
