Arroyo Verde Park Playground design community outreach meeting

The City of Ventura invites residents of all ages to help design the new playground at Arroyo Verde Park. The park’s previous play structure was destroyed in the Thomas Fire, and the City plans to build a brand-new inclusive playground where children of all abilities can play. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 16, from 6-7 pm, in the Wright Event Center at Ventura College, 57 Day Road.

“Families love going to parks with innovative design features,” said Mayor Matt LaVere. “As a father of two young daughters, I am very excited about the new playground and an inclusive design that welcomes children of all abilities. I encourage both youth and adults to attend and share their ideas at the upcoming design meeting.”

Representatives from Pacific Coast Land Design and the City of Ventura will conduct the outreach meeting to collect input from the community on the design concepts for the project. The playground will incorporate various features and integrate play opportunities to create a space for all to play. A significant portion of the project will be funded publicly to help with the cost of play space surfacing and structures needed for inclusivity.

Arroyo Verde Park, located at Foothill and Day Roads, was closed for approximately 10-weeks after the Thomas Fire to ensure safe conditions for park users. The Interpretive Center, pump house, playground, and slopes on both sides of the park were burned during the fire.
