Del Norte and Hammond Parks Construction Projects Underway

The Del Norte Pier Picnic Area, adjacent to the Waterfront Trail at the foot of Del Norte Street, will be developed and expanded to include a new restroom facility, playground and dog park.

The new playground will be inclusive so youth of all abilities can participate in the fun. This will be the second dog park developed in Eureka and will provide another welcome play area for four-legged friends. The new Parks-Waterfront Ranger will patrol the area as it is along the Waterfront Trail. This park expansion is made possible thanks to a $125,000 grant from the Housing Related Parks Program administered by the California Department of Housing and Community Development, as well as a portion of a $250,000 one-time allocation from Eureka City Council for both the Del Norte and Hammond Parks projects. Grant parameters require all funding received is solely dedicated to this project and location. The City is currently soliciting donations for this project.

At Hammond Park (14th & E St.) the old restroom and concession stand have been demolished and a new restroom facility and concession stand will be built.
