The City of Goleta celebrated the grand opening of its newly renovated multi-use recreational field this week.
The field is located at 5679 Hollister Ave., behind the Goleta Valley Community Center and next to the Boys & Girls Club.
The one-acre site includes new natural grass turf with gopher mesh, new irrigation, a perimeter walking path, fitness station, and new fencing.
The city broke ground on the project in June.
"This new recreation space is a great addition for the entire community, the hundreds of children who attend the Goleta Boys & Girls Club each day, and those who use the Goleta Valley Community Center," said Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte. "In addition to the recently opened Jonny D. Wallis Neighborhood Park in Old Town Goleta, this field shows the City's commitment to creating spaces for the community to enjoy."
The renovations were funded by a $267,000 Housing Related Parks Program grant from the State of California's Department of Housing and Community Development and nearly $281,000 in Park Development Impact Fees.
