A new park is coming to our community! To expand the number of public parks and open spaces within walking distance to one’s home, California announced an investment of $548.3 million in grants to create parks closer to where Californians live. We are so pleased to announce that the City of Porterville has been awarded 7.8 million for the Fourth Street Community Park Project to create a new community center and park adjacent to the Rails to Trails corridor off of Henderson Avenue at Fourth Street. The multi-use community center will have an ADA accessible playground, splash pad, challenge course, mini pitch soccer arena, pump track, four outdoor exercise stations, picnic shelter, public art wall, and more!
Awarded through the Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Grant Program, the project is set for completion in Fall of 2024. Stay tuned for more details and follow the progress of the park!
