Recovery work on the Six Fire Damaged Parks project in Fountaingrove, that began in May, is nearing completion. In fact recovery work on Parker Hill Trail, Rincon Ridge Open Space and Francis Nielsen Park have been completed.

Installation of the new playground structures at Fir Ridge Park are currently underway and are expected to be completed and enjoyed within the next two weeks. Additional amenities completed at Fir Ridge Park include the site furnishings, basketball court, split rail fence, and drinking fountains. The concrete stairs have been poured and the handrails are being installed. Installation of the irrigation system is currently underway, while installation of the grass is expected by the end of the month. Fences will remain in place around the field to allow the grass time to take root, which is typically after the second cutting.

Nagasawa Park will be complete once the park signage is installed. Site furnishings are in place and the upgraded parking light poles and irrigation system have been installed.

At Rincon Ridge Park, all concrete work has been completed and site furnishings and drinking fountains have been installed. The irrigation system is currently being installed and tested and the grass is expected to be installed by the end of the month. Similar to Fir Ridge Park, fencing around the field will remain in place to allow the grass time to take root.

Construction costs to restore the six parks and open space parcels is approximately $1.5 million. The funding was obtained through FEMA, Cal OES, and PG&E settlement funds.
