Renovations at Lompoc's Thompson Park nearing completion

Posted: Updated:

Renovations that have been in the works at Lompoc's Thompson Park for more than a year are in the final stages.

The City says the majority of the park, located between College and Maple avenues, is expected to be open for the community to enjoy by the end of the month.

The project, which was in the planning stages for a while before work began in November, includes renovating the softball field, a shaded picnic area, new playground equipment with a rubber play surface, a permanent monument sign, new ADA-compliant walking paths, fencing and restrooms. 

The softball field and restroom are not expected to re-open until March. 

"The improvements being made to Thompson Park are much-needed," said Lompoc Facilities, Fleet and Park Maintenance Manager Dirk Ishiwata in a press release. "We look forward to providing our community with a revitalized Thompson Park for children and adults to enjoy. This project will
not only beautify Thompson Park and make it more accessible with improved features, but will also make the park safer."

The projects were made possibly by a $466,450 grant the city received from the California Department of Housing and Community Development in 2016 and another $265,594 Community Development Block Grant.
