Grove Park Update

Through the City RFP process, staff went out to bid to replace and renovate two and a half basketball courts, three tennis courts and the associated lighting at Grove Park. 

Additionally, the proposal includes a renovation of the bathroom that replaces the siding, roofing and makes it ADA compliant. This project is funded by Measure WW (EBRPD Bond) and COB Parks Tax (Measure F). Unfortunately, there have been some significant hurdles that have led to substantial delays. Those include unforeseen site conditions, very heavy winter rains, sub-standard work, and other issues.  The City is working with the contractor and designer to take actions to correct the deficiencies. City staff is working hard to resolve these issues in hopes of opening the park in early Fall.  Thank you for your patience.  We look forward to providing the community with a park that will be a much more fun, lively and accessible to all.

Phase 2 of this project includes the ballfield and has been funded by the City’s 2016 T1 bond measure. We will begin design work at the conclusion of Phase 1 construction.
