DALY CITY RE-OPENS FIVE TOT LOTS
Renovations of 10 Others Nears Completion
Daly City – Fourteen months after it first approved the concept to upgrade and improve 15 tot lots as a $2 million project, the City Council of Daly City re-opened five tot lots on October 21st. Starting at 9:30 a.m., a delegation of city officials and staff as well as community and media representatives left City Hall to the first of five ribbon-cutting celebrations.

The Saturday morning itinerary was as follows:
  • Cameo Tot Lot, 88 Cameo Court 10:00 a.m.
  • Canterbury Tot Lot, 120 Canterbury Avenue 10:30 a.m.
  • Hampshire Tot Lot, 96 Hampshire Avenue 11:00 a.m.
  • Camelot Tot Lot, 55 Camelot Court 11:30 a.m.
  • Longview Tot Lot, 50 Longview Drive 12 noon
Residents from the five neighborhoods joined the delegation in re-opening the newly renovated tot lots. "Seeing the children's smiling faces as we unveiled the big toys, swings, creative play structures and exploration pieces in the mini-parks was most rewarding," Mayor Sal Torres noted.

Richmond-based Bauman Landscape Inc. is expected to complete the renovation of the remaining 10 tot lots (Alta Loma, Arden Park, John Daly, Edgewood Park, Lincoln Park, Lycett, Mission Hills Park, Northridge Park, Palisades Park, and Polaris Park) by December.

The $2 million project is the first to be completed in the city's five-year $40 million capital improvement program.
