Major Renovation, New Installations to be Celebrated at Redwood City's Andrew Spinas Park

Redwood City, CA - December 29, 2003 - Redwood City’s Andrew Spinas Park was built in the 1960s, and was last renovated in the 1980s. Now, after a half-million dollar investment, this park is state-of-the-art for the 21st century. The community is invited to join the re-dedication of Andrew Spinas Park on Saturday, January 24th at 9 am. Andrew Spinas Park is located on Second Avenue between Bay Road and Broadway (next door to Redwood City Fire Station #11). Light refreshments will be served.

This event will celebrate the major renovation of the park – the updated layout includes new swings and spring toys, a fire engine climbing structure, a special waterplay "sprayground" that will be very popular during the summer, new restrooms, picnic tables, and benches, and new turf and landscaping. Special tours of Redwood City Fire Station #11 will commence immediately after the ceremony.

This is the fourth Redwood City park renovation to utilize the architectural firm of MIG out of Berkeley, CA (the other three are Stafford, Stulsaft, and Maddux – all highly successful renovations). The contractor that did the work was Scapes Inc. of Half Moon Bay, CA. Redwood City would like to thank the Rotary Club of Redwood City, which made a significant donation for a picnic table that was installed in the park. This project was funded with Redwood City Capital Improvement funds, allocated in the 2000-2001 fiscal year.

The Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department provides recreational facilities and activities for all ages and interests, and supplies building and custodial services for City buildings. Redwood City Parks also operates the Fair Oaks Community Center, providing social, educational, and cultural activities, as well as information, referral, and counseling services to persons living in Redwood City and neighboring communities. Redwood City Parks is more than you think! Its website is located at
