DALY CITY COMPLETES $2 MILLION PARKS PROJECT
Ten More Tot Lots Re-Opened January 27th
Daly City – Daly City celebrated the completion of its $2 million renovation project for 15 neighborhood park facilities when it re-opened the remaining ten tot lots last Saturday, January 27th. Ribbon-cutting ceremonies were scheduled at each site, starting at 9:30 a.m., when a delegation of city officials and staff as well as community and media representatives left City Hall to the designated locations.

The morning itinerary was as follows:
¨ Lycett Tot Lot, 56 N. Lycett Circle 10:00 a.m.
¨ John Daly Tot Lot, 130 Hillcrest Drive 10:00 a.m.
¨ Northridge Park, 101 Northridge Avenue 10:30 a.m.
¨ Arden Park, 2 Arden Count 10:30 a.m.
¨ Polaris Tot Lot, 247 Polaris Way 11:00 a.m.
¨ Palisades Park, 101 Palisades Avenue 11:00 a.m.
¨ Alta Loma Tot Lot, 354 Alta Loma Avenue 11:30 a.m.
¨ Mission Hills Park, 1000 Mission Hills Drive 11:30 a.m.
¨ Edgewood Park, 173 East Vista Avenue 12 noon
¨ Lincoln Park, 901 Brunswick Street 12:30 p.m.

"Residents from the respective neighborhoods joined us Saturday morning. When we re-opened the first group of tot lots last October, the reception we received at each the site was most rewarding. To see the joy on the children's faces as they viewed the big toys, swings, creative play structures and exploration pieces for the first time was an experience worth repeating. As for those residents whose ideas were incorporated in the plan, the park's unveiling was a proud moment," Mayor Carol Klatt noted.

Bauman Landscape Inc., a Richmond-based firm, was awarded the construction project last June. The five tot lots re-opened last October are Cameo, Canterbury, Hampshire, Camelot and Longview.

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