Neighborhood Park Re-opens

February 8, 2012 was a special day for the folks in Southwest Tustin when the city re-opened the Mcfadden-Pasadena Parkette. According to Tustin Communications Director, Lisa Woolery, the neighborhood celebrated with refreshments while children played on the new equipment. There were plenty of speeches and lots of fun, including Woofer the mascot. Mayor John Nielsen and Mayor pro tem, Al Murray, climbed atop one of the structures to officially cut the ribbon and open the park.

The project is from the Neighborhood Improvement Task Force which used the effort to make the park safer and more attractive for the neighborhood. The revamp includes:

  • 1,200 square foot playground area with perimeter curbing

  • Galaxy Climbing Structure
  • Big Toys Rotating Dish Engineered
  • Wood Fiber Surfacing
  • 250 linear feet of Decorative Tubular Steel Fencing

The playground and the beautiful lawn are sure to make this a great place for families to take their kids. While it may not be the largest park in Tustin, Lisa assures me that open

What is really great is the City rallying its resources for the folks who live here. That’s what makes Tustin one of the most desirable places to live in the country. Good show, Mayor Nielsen and Council. This is the kind of thing Our Town Tustin likes to see.
