The City of Monterey Park will host a park needs assessment workshop at the Barnes Park Service Club House on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend and provide valuable input on what type of recreation facilities the city needs in the future.
Potential projects that may be discussed include Barnes Park Pool renovations or a community garden. Studies have shown that the availability of quality recreation and park facilities leads to a healthy lifestyle and strong neighborhoods.
At the end of the two hour session, a prioritized list of facilities will be created and sent to Los Angeles County for possible future funding. The information will also be added to the park master plan.
Light refreshments will be served during the event and lunch will be provided at the conclusion.
The Barnes Park Service Club House is located at 440 S. McPherrin Ave., Monterey Park, CA 91754 at the corner of McPherrin and Harding Avenues. For more information please contact the Recreation and Community Services Department at 626-307-1388 or visit www.MontereyPark.ca.gov.
