Proposition 84


The City of Greenfield has been awarded Proposition 84 grant funding from the State of California for the development of a 3-acre new community park to be located at Apple Avenue and 3rd Street. Proposition 84, the safe drinking water, water quality and supply, flood control, river and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006, provides funding for the acquisition and development of public parks. The money is available to cities, counties, districts, non-profits, and joint powers authorities to create new recreation opportunities in disadvantaged communities that lack space and have low median household incomes.

The grant amount awarded to the City for the new community park is $2,982,281. The Proposition 84 grant is being administered by the California State Department of Parks and Recreation. The proposed project includes the retention and rehabilitation of an existing residential structure for use as a restroom facility, the demolition and removal of the existing shed and barn, and some physical improvements to accommodate a park with active and passive recreational activities.

The new park will include:
  • Bermed earth with vegetation screen and wind barrier trees
  • Boulder garden
  • Full-size tennis court
  • Gazebo
  • Half-court basketball court
  • Parking lot with 4 parking spaces
  • Picnic areas
  • Play area with play equipment
  • Turf play area
  • Walking/jogging trail that follows the perimeter of the project site
  • Water fountain
