Martin Ray Reilly Park

On December 2, 2010, the Agency approved of $260,000 to assist development of the Martin Ray Reilly Neighborhood Park at 763 North Garden located on the east side of Chestnut Ave bounded by Turner Avenue and the on-ramp to State Route 180. Funding sources for the estimated construction cost of $2.1 million includes Park Bond Funds and potentially state park grants. This Park will improve the quality of life for area residents and families, eliminate vacant underutilized land, and make significant improvements to a highly visible location at Fwy 180 and Chestnut Avenues.

The need for development of a park at this location was identified in The Trust for Public Land (2005) Analysis which found that the Central Valley, projected to be one of the fastest growing regions in the state over the next decade, is one of the most underserved regions in the state in terms of public open space and recreation areas.
