Park Projects

In September 2013, Council adopted a goal to enhance community sports and recreational assets. Since then, Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funding has been prioritized and allocated on an annual basis from available sources such as the Capital Project Reserve Fund, the  Housing Development Impact Fees (subject to Quimby Act & Mitigation Fee Act) and supplemented with grants, corporate and individual donations.

Projects Under Construction

Reed & Grant Streets Sports Park

When complete in Fall 2019, the Reed & Grant Street Sport Park will include five lighted soccer fields (with multiple configurations), two off street parking lots, a multi-purpose community recreation building, a landscaped promenade and entry plaza, a children’s playground with seating and picnic area, team gathering and spectator viewing areas, a maintenance yard, and a restroom building for the Raymond G. Gamma Dog Park.

Update on Raymond G Gamma Dog Park Closure & Community Input

Due to ongoing construction, limited access and safety concerns, the Raymond G. Gamma Dog park will now remain closed until the parks project is completed in Fall 2019. Right now, the City of Santa Clara is constructing the new Reed and Grant Street Sports Park while making dog park improvements, including underground and above ground utilities, site grading, utility, new dog park restroom, paved parking lot and lighting. The public’s patience is appreciated while the park construction and dog park improvements are being made.

In the meantime, a temporary, off leash dog facility, with areas for large and small dogs is located at Larry Marsalli Park on Lafayette Blvd. The temporary dog-friendly facility opened in December 2018. It will remain open [except for maintenance and inclement weather] through the duration of the Reed and Grant Park construction project.  This location has paved parking and restroom facilities.  For other dog parks in the area, visit the Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority website.

The City conducted an online survey and held a community meeting on November 6, 2018.  The City’s goal is to include any additional improvements as part of the current construction, such as natural/synthetic turf, mounds/flat, additional area, amenities, as well as operations and maintenance considerations.
