Sacramento Parks and Rec Department
The City of Sacramento’s Parks and Recreation Department is looking at creating a new kind of park.
The park is called a “small public place.” It’s an area less than 5 acres in size and could be similar to a place like Cesar Chavez Plaza downtown, or smaller than that, like a tot lot or a garden.
Pat Tindell, with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department says the city is looking all over Sacramento for spots to put these small public places:
They’re spaces which could be things like urban plazas and town squares and sometimes they can even include landscape areas where people would want to sit and relax and things like that.
Parks officials want the public’s input on what kind of small public places they would like to see in their neighborhoods.
The City Council is having a meeting on small public places at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 30th.
