New $2.9 Million Grant Request for Cooper Gulch Park

The City of Eureka is excited to announce its application for the Prop 68: Rural Recreation and Tourism Program offered by California State Parks.

This funding helps fund park projects in critically underserved communities with low population levels. The city is working hard to improve all city parks with the focus of this grant application being to revitalize Cooper Gulch Park.

This grant application is an evolution from a previous Prop 68 funding opportunity that was not awarded funding.
