At some time during the year, most if not every park has projects being completed. Some of these projects are simple – irrigation repair, tree trimming, and fence repair. But as our infrastructure ages, upgrades and replacement of equipment, components of facilities, and path replacements are also necessary. These priorities become major projects.
The purpose of this page is to let you know the status for each of our major projects. The page will be updated at least twice monthly. If you would like additional information, please call the Park Services Office at (310) 781-6901.
Our projects include:
