Redwood City and Redwood Oaks Neighborhood Association Invite Community to Celebrate Completion of Fleishman Park Renovations

Redwood City, CA - October 16 , 2006 - With the 2006 renovation of Redwood City’s Fleishman Park nearly complete, the City and the Redwood Oaks Neighborhood Association invite the community to join the celebration! It’s a neighborhood park party on Saturday, October 21, 2006 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Fleishman Park is located on McEvoy Street in Redwood City. Free hot dogs, soda, and chips, and fun activities for kids will help set a festive mood, as Mayor Barbara Pierce welcomes the guests and officially re-opens the park during a short program beginning at 11:30 am.

It’s been 25 years since the park’s landscaping and play equipment were updated at this well-utilized neighborhood park that was named after Herman G. Fleishman, the first Redwood City police officer killed in the line of duty. Since 1939 the park has borne the Fleishman name, and generations of families have enjoyed it on a daily basis as wonderful community asset.

The $500,000 renovation includes new turf, shrubs, and landscaping, new play equipment and water play feature, new picnic tables and benches, and a soon-to-be-installed brand new restroom facility (expected in November).

The Redwood Oaks Neighborhood Association has been very involved and supportive in working with the City throughout the design and construction process, and obtained a $6,000 grant from Peninsula Community Foundation for a tile history walk addition in the park.

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
