Planning Efforts

Thank you for the input that you’ve provided us over the years, which we’ve formalized in strategic planning documents including the Anaheim Outdoors Connectivity Plan and our Parks Plan

We’ve used your input as guidance to focus our planning and implementation efforts. As a result, over the past year, we’ve completed Maxwell Dog Park, Cottonwood Playground Improvements, and Aloe Greens Park. 

Help Build a Playground at Center Greens with KABOOM! and the Anaheim Ducks!

Join us on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th as we BUILD A PLAYGROUND at Center Greens Park (next to the Downtown Community Center). All are welcome! Volunteers working within the playground area must be legal working age or older. There will be arts & crafts projects for youth at the Downtown Community Center. Event will take place in rain or sun. Please wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothes that can get dirty. Meals, water, gloves and masks will be provided!

OC River Walk

We are currently working on an exciting new planning project called the OC River Walk. Our vision for this project is to transform the River Corridor into a primary connective open space uniting the Southern California region.

Goals for this project are to:

  • Increase public recreation and connectivity, 
  • Catalyze economic growth and development, 
  • Improve visual and physical access to the river, and 
  • Enhance the aesthetics and ecology of the river and surrounding region.

The City recently completed the OC River Walk Engineering Feasibility Study, which identified 17 opportunities on the Santa Ana River for active transportation connections and community amenities such as parks, plazas, and art. 

Funding Opportunities

We are pleased to announce that we recently received a grant from the State Coastal Conservancy to conduct community outreach, environmental analysis, design, and permit applications for several elements within the Feasibility Study!

In addition, we are actively seeking funding for three exciting park projects: La Palma Park, River Park and Little Pine Park. Click on the links below to learn more about each of these projects.
