The Ribbon Cutting will take place on the west side of the newly constructed fields, just behind the Community Garden. Central Park is located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road.
Central Park is considered the crown jewel in the city’s parks system, hosting a variety of sports teams and special events each year.
The addition of two new fields and enhanced amenities is part of the city of Santa Clarita’s commitment to supporting a healthy Santa Clarita and quality recreation facilities for the entire community to enjoy.
The fencing surrounding the two new sports fields will be removed on Saturday, Aug. 30.
The exercise plaza was originally installed by Eagle Scout Troop 2222 a while ago, said Christina McGoldrick of the communications division of the city of Santa Clarita.. For the expansion, the city made some enhancements and added shade structures.
“Santa Clarita is a very active community,” McGoldrick said. “The demand for new sports field spaces are high.”
When the project is completed, it will have costed the city $2.4 million.
“City staff hope the new fields will help them accommodate the many teams, youth and sports groups who use the parks year-round for practice, training, and games,” according to a press release.
