The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department held a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the reopening of Eastside Neighborhood Park after a multi-phase park improvement project.

Mayor Randy Rowse, Councilmember Alejandra Gutierrez, and Parks and Recreation Director Jill Zachary shared remarks highlighting the history of the project and the community collaboration involved.

Students from neighboring Franklin Elementary School assisted community leaders, community members, and City staff in cutting the ceremonial ribbon before running to play on the new 5-12 playground.

The improved park hosts two new playgrounds, adult fitness equipment, accessible pathways to connect park features, remodeled restrooms, renovated turf areas, refreshed murals, and more than 250 cubic yards of fresh mulch.

Enhancements to Yanonali Garden, the community garden within the park, are still ongoing.
