Lar Rieu Park Upgrades

As part of the 2016-18 capital budget, city council appropriated funding to evaluate and complete park improvements at Lar Rieu Park at 196 El Camino Corto. In July 2016, the Lar Rieu Park working group (LRPWG) was formed to develop a conceptual park plan. At the May 1 city council meeting, council adopted the overall Lar Rieu Park Conceptual Plan and approved the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Commission’s (PROS) recommendations to install base amenities in the initial phase of construction. City staff will work with the community and CERT organization to determine the appropriate location for the CERT container, determine which native trees to plant; work with the community to decide the final location of the parking lot; and add the restroom to the capital investment program budget discussion.

In January 2017, a public survey was conducted to provide an opportunity for the broader community to provide feedback on the conceptual plan. Respondents were interested in walking trails, viewing benches, and picnic areas along with a community orchard. A possible next phase of amenities would include a play area, zip line, restroom, stage/viewing platform, and pavilion.

The site was grant deeded in 1976 to the city by Miriam Lar Rieu, who died in 2003.
