The City of Chino Hills is excited to announce a renovation project at Crossroads Park to replace the existing 20-year-old playground equipment with the City’s first fully inclusive playground for people of all abilities to enjoy. Park improvements will also include the construction of accessible pathways, improved lighting, new picnic tables and benches, expansion of the existing parking lot, and resurfacing of the existing tennis courts. The park will be closed to the public throughout the project’s duration beginning October 9, 2023, through January 31, 2024. Access to restrooms and tennis courts will be available.
Throughout the duration of the project the playground, gazebo, picnic areas, and parking lot will remain closed to the public. Tennis courts and restroom facilities will remain accessible from Avenida De Las Flores to minimize impacts to the community. Please be advised that during construction there will be no ADA accessible walkway to the tennis courts as access will be through the grass area. Tennis courts will be closed during the resurfacing process and those dates will be provided closer to the start of that portion of the project.
The City is investing a total of $1.1 million into the Crossroads Park renovation project. Of the total project cost, $125,000 was provided by a generous donation from the Chino Hills Community Foundation, with Foundation support from the Howard and Nikki Applebaum Foundation and the Jack and Gloria Kramer Family Foundation, and $210,000 was funded through the California Department of Parks and Recreation Proposition 68 Per Capita Grant Program. The remaining $815,000 was funded by the City’s General Fund and Community Facilities District Regional Fund.
