The City broke ground on Phase 3 of improvements to San Gabriel Park on June 6.
Phase 3 of the San Gabriel Park improvements project includes a large multi-use performance pavilion, a splash pad plaza, entry monuments, roadway and parking improvements, shade shelters, a new restroom building and a new skate park.
The $7.5 million project is expected to be completed in spring 2024.
“San Gabriel Park is a beautiful place to visit, and it’s something that’s important to our residents,” said Eric Nuner, Parks and Recreation Department assistant director. “We’re proud of these improvements and what they’ve done to create spaces for people to get outside and enjoy themselves.”
City Council approved a contract with Choice Builders LLC to complete the construction of Phase 3.
Funding for the improvements was approved by voters in a 2008 bond.
Access to the park will not be affected; however, short-term road closures and detours are expected to happen throughout construction. A portion San Gabriel Park loop trail is expected to be closed during periods of construction.
The San Gabriel Park Master Plan, which was completed in June 2015, identified improvements to be completed in phases to limit park disruptions.
