Beginning Monday, Nov. 7, the City of Chino Hills will begin an $8 million rehabilitation project at the community park that will include three phases of work over the next two years, resulting in the closure of the ball diamonds.
Signs will be installed in the park to inform residents of the work and closures.
All six ball diamonds will be re-landscaped with artificial turf in the outfields and the infields will be converted to artificial turf.
The parking lot will be expanded by paving the grassed area at the southwest corner of the park, near the Eucalyptus Loop trailhead.
Exterior repair and painting work will take place on buildings, infrastructure and fences.
The first phase will include fields 1 to 4 and the main bathroom near the snack bar, the replacement of windshields in the dugouts and enclosures, and exterior repairs.
Courts 1-4 and the main park area, including the play area and main bathroom, will not be available.
Fields 5 and 6 will remain available for assigned use until mid-December. There will be a complete closure of the park from Monday December 19 to allow staff and contractors to complete the necessary work. The park is scheduled to reopen on Friday, February 3, 2023.
Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in March 2023 and run through August 2023. This phase will include parking lot expansion, new portable baseball/softball fencing, LED lighting on all six fields and potentially new LED digital scoreboards .
Phase 3 is scheduled to begin in September 2023 and end in February 2024 with the redevelopment of fields 5 and 6 as well as landscaping repairs and improvements. Fields 5 and 6 cannot be used from November 2023 to February 2024.
Fields 1-4 will remain available for assigned use.
Of the $8 million allocated to the park, $1 million is paid for by funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The rest will be funded by a combination of funds from the general fund, parks maintenance and community amenities districts.
