California State Parks has awarded the City of Eureka’s 20/30 Park with $6,393,200 for park improvements.
California State Parks received 478 applications requesting $2.3 billion in funding. With only $254.9 million available, only 62 projects were funded, making Eureka very fortunate to receive this competitive grant. In 2018, California voters passed Prop 68, which directed $254.9 million to State Parks for competitive grants to create new parks and enhance recreational opportunities for all Californians. This is the state’s largest investment in grant funding history targeted for underserved communities and the City of Eureka is excited to announce major improvements planned due to this generous funding opportunity.
Planned park improvements are based on a robust community engagement process where community members shared concerns regarding safety, access, walkability, recreational amendments, and inclusion.
