Baker Park Opening Celebration Planned for May 4
"Not only are we adding some much-needed green space, but a new park in Long Beach gives our residents more opportunities to be active and enjoy a healthier lifestyle," said Mayor Bob Foster.
Park amenities include picnic areas, a universally accessible playground and a walking path.
"Baker Park is the second park to open in a community that until recently had no park space at all," 7th District Councilmember James Johnson said. "Thanks go to the community partners that made this park a reality."
The park project was funded with $500,000 from the Los Angeles County Park District, $100,000 from Long Beach Container Terminal Inc. and park impact fees.
