Park Capital Improvements

The Community Services Department’s Capital Improvement Section

The Capital Improvement Section of the Community Services Department is responsible for the acquisition, master planning, design & construction of parks and trails. These projects consist of facility improvements & upgrades to existing parks and trails, as well as the development of new park land. The Capital Improvement Section also oversees development of buildings such as gymnasiums and community centers.

Capital improvements are funded by fees paid by private developers who construct new residential projects within the city of Anaheim per the Anaheim Municipal Code section 17.34. In lieu of paying a fee to the City, Developers may dedicate and develop land for parks and recreational facilities. Capital improvement projects are also funded through a variety of federal, state, and local grants.

The City recently completed an extensive outreach process to confirm the Master Plan concept for La Palma Park that was initially created in 2016. Neighborhood residents expressed a desire for a park that is safe and beautiful. The revised Master Plan reflects this desire and incorporates the recreation features most desired by residents. This updated plan will be used to seek funding.

Multiple community meetings were held at Haskett Library to share the draft designs and obtain feedback. During those meetings, the community requested additional amenities such as agility equipment, strategically located trees, landscape buffers, and signage, etc. The above image is the final Master Plan that was developed as a result of public input and was approved by the Parks and Recreation Commission in March 2019. We are currently furthering the planning and design process which includes developing Construction Documents and submitting applications for construction permits.
