The project's design was approved by the city in October 2021. On Aug. 23, 2022, the city council approved a contract with Central Coast Playgrounds to remodel the park.

The finished park will have poured-in-place rubber surfacing instead of sand.

During construction, the playground area will be closed. Portions of the sidewalk and some parking spaces will also be closed.

Crews are set to work between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays.
