City Seeks Community’s Input on Renovation of Fleishman Park
Redwood City, CA - July 28, 2005
- With a restroom dating from 1963 and play equipment that’s seen heavy use since the early 1980s, Fleishman Park is due for a major renovation. Redwood City held a community input meeting in June to gather ideas from the people who enjoy the park, and now the City’s consultant hired to design the renovated park is returning with a conceptual plan for public review.
Neighbors of the park as well as anyone interested in how this park will be renovated are invited to attend a community meeting on Saturday August 6, 2005 beginning at 11 am to review and comment on the conceptual design for the renovation of Fleishman Park. The meeting will take place at the park, which is located on McEvoy Street, between Madrone and Cypress. Hot dogs, chips, and soda will be served.
Following the community’s input into the conceptual plan, the consultant will begin work on the final plans for the renovation. It’s expected that these plans will be completed by the end of this year. Construction should begin in the spring of 2006 with an expected completion by summer of 2006. Fleishman Park is a small (approximately 0.63 acres) neighborhood park containing play equipment, a play area, picnic tables, barbeque pits, and restrooms, and primarily serves the Redwood Oaks and Palm Park neighborhoods.
