Project Information

The Silverado Park Signature Playground Project will focus on replacing the existing playground facilities and site furnishings. Designs will include new and exciting play elements in two distinct play areas: 2-5 year olds and 5-12 year olds. The playground colors and theme will also complement the existing mural at Silverado Park.

The project aims to:

  • Provide playground improvements to serve a high-need community
  • Increase the useful life of the facility
  • Provide an inviting environment for the community
  • Address ADA accessibility

Project Funding

Former U.S. House Representative Lowenthal generously secured $1.5 million in federally earmarked funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Fund. In addition, $700,000 Measure A Funds have also been allocated to the project. Together, these two funding sources will go towards a full reconstruction of Silverado Playground, including new play features, benches, picnic tables, and ADA site improvements.
