DALY CITY RE-OPENS
FIVE TOT LOTS
Renovations of 10 Others Nears Completion
– 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.
Saturday morning itinerary was as follows:
Cameo Tot Lot, 88 Cameo Court 10:00 a.m.
Tot Lot, 120 Canterbury Avenue 10:30 a.m.
Tot Lot, 96 Hampshire Avenue 11:00 a.m.
Tot Lot, 55 Camelot Court 11:30 a.m.
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)
The $2 million project is the first to be completed
in the city's five-year $40 million capital improvement
