Bayer Neighborhood Park and Gardens Planning and Construction FAQs:
What does the Updated Master Plan include?
The Updated Master Plan features an expanded community garden, gathering areas, a rehabilitated barn and animal enclosure, turf areas, three play zones, amphitheatre, picnic areas, wetland area, orchards, placita and kiosko (central courtyard), cross cultural ovens, restrooms and open air community kitchen pavilion.
We have met with the community and updated the Master Plan to meet the available budget. The Updated Master Plan will be brought before council in August or September of 2013. It is anticipated that construction will begin in late spring or early summer of 2014.
Who will pay for the construction?
At this time the City staff has secured several grants for the construction of the park. Grant funding includes: Proposition 84 Statewide Parks Program ($4,833,467), Housing Related Parks Program ($317,900) and the Stewardship Council ($189,000).
