News and Upcoming Events
The City of Kingsburg will be applying for Prop 68 funding which will be distributing $650 million dollars throughout municipalities across California. Applicable projects must involve either the development of a new park, expansion of an existing park, or renovation of an existing park. All projects must create or renovate at least one recreation feature. These recreation features can include, but are not limited to; aquatic centers, amphitheaters, athletic courts, community gardens, recreation centers, dog parks, picnic areas, playgrounds, public art, skate parks, and shade structures. Projects may also include funding of major support amenities such as restrooms, snack bars, parking lots, and landscaping/lighting.
Applicants for the Prop 68 Parks Grant must submit a different application for each project and an applicant can potentially receive multiple grant awards that total more than $8.5 million.
The City will be applying for this grant to seek improvements made to Athwal Park, Heritage Park, Bi-Centennial Park & the Dog Park. The City is also seeking funds for a proposed regional sports complex. There will be several meetings hosted for each of these parks to gather community input and recommendations.
In addition, the City will be hosting a Groundbreaking Ceremony at Athwal Park on on July 11 at 9am. The first phase of the project will include the skatepark, outdoor fitness center, play structure, and sidewalks. This project is being made possible by funding from the Kingsburg Tri-County Health Care District.
