Steinmetz Park in Hacienda Heights is among 12 parks throughout Los Angeles County that will have their play areas renovated as approved by the Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.
The renovations will include the replacement of the old, non-compliant play equipment and surfacing with new play equipment and modern surfacing designed to reduce the stress of impacts. The new play area improvements will meet all applicable State laws including Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility.
The cost of these renovations at Steinmetz Park will be approximately $450,000, with $315,000 coming from Proposition 12 funds and the remaining $135,000 will come form Proposition A funds.
These are necessary renovations that will provide our parks with new play equipment and low-impact surfacing, said Supervisor Knabe. Our children deserve to go parks that have both safe and modern playground equipment.
