Thanks to the efforts of Fourth District City Councilmember Patrick O'Donnell, the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine, Orizaba Park has been expanded and improved.
The project included 1.1 acres of expanded parkland in addition to the renovation of the existing park. The park now has a total of 3.7 acres. The existing park was completely renovated with the exception of the new KaBOOM! playground and the mature trees. The entire park received new landscaping, irrigation, trees, and sidewalks. The expansion included a new skate park, soccer field, full-sized basketball court, outdoor exercise equipment, a main walkway constructed to look like train tracks and a train art piece, in recognition of the history of the park’s location on the old red car line.
