Parks should be a place where residents of all ages can engage in healthy, outdoor activities and gather safely for family-friendly fun. In the spirit of making park space more accessible in our cities, the state made competitive grant funding available from the California Department of Parks and Recreation in order to improve existing parks and create new parks.

CARD is pursuing this grant to continue renovation of the Dorothy F. Johnson Park at 775 East 16th St. with additional outdoor recreation features.

May contain: collage, poster, advertisement, person, and human
Examples of additional recreation features

A key part of the process is to engage with the community surrounding the Dorothy F. Johnson Park to ensure that the park will include the feedback and priorities of those who will use it most. Your participation is essential to helping us submit a strong grant application.
