Park Capital Improvements


The Community Services Department’s Capital Improvement Section



The Capital Improvement Section of the Community Services Department is responsible for the acquisition, master planning, design & construction of parks and trails. These projects consist of facility improvements & upgrades to existing parks and trails, as well as the development of new park land. The Capital Improvement Section also oversees development of buildings such as gymnasiums and community centers.

Capital improvements are funded by fees paid by private developers who construct new residential projects within the city of Anaheim per the Anaheim Municipal Code section 17.34. In lieu of paying a fee to the City, Developers may dedicate and develop land for parks and recreational facilities. Capital improvement projects are also funded through a variety of federal, state, and local grants.

La Palma Park - Improvements

Anaheim - La Palma Park Concept Plan (4-23-19) 24 x 36 Opens in new window

We want your input! The City of Anaheim is partnering with the community to reimagine the west side of La Palma Park.  In 2016, the City launched the initial community input process for this portion of the park, and the resulting design included a synthetic turf soccer field, two natural turf fields, a play area, a restroom building with community rooms, a perimeter trail with exercise equipment, a multipurpose open air sports arena, an events plaza, and lighting, master plan above.  We are now seeking State Proposition 68 funding for these improvements, and want to confirm that the previously requested amenities still meet our communities’ needs and priorities for La Palma Park.

Multiple community meetings were held at Haskett Library to share the draft designs and obtain feedback. During those meetings, the community requested additional amenities such as agility equipment, strategically located trees, landscape buffers, and signage, etc. The above image is the final Master Plan that was developed as a result of public input and was approved by the Parks and Recreation Commission in March 2019. We are currently furthering the planning and design process which includes developing Construction Documents and submitting applications for construction permits.
