The citizens of Magalia and the Upper Ridge have been working with PRPD staff and Board to get a park in Magalia since 2006. At LONG last PRPD is pleased to announce that the District has received funding to build Lakeridge Park in Magalia. This $5,2275,277 grant will fund the development of a new recreation center, grass play field, outdoor sport court, adventure playground, two traditional playgrounds, a swing complex, hiking/walking/biking paths, botanical garden, amphitheater, interactive water fountain, restrooms, and parking areas. Thank you to all the hundreds of Upper Ridge residents that have given their time and voice to help earn this hard-won grant award and their new park!
This is a very large development project and it could take up to three years to complete the project. At this time PRPD estimates the following rough timeline (subject to change):
October 2022 - Site cleanup
November 2022 - Trail building begins
December 2022 - Public outreach related to updated building and park design plan.
April 2023 - Earth moving work to level ground for the major amentities.
August 2023 - Construction begins
June 2025 - Park grand opening
More to come. Stay tuned and check back for updates as we make progress toward building your beautiful new park!
