Parks Improvements in 2017

Our public parks play an important role in the quality of life we enjoy here in Orange.  Parks are places of relaxation and recreation that are available, free of charge, for all to enjoy.

In 2017, two of our parks will undergo major renovations and receive upgrades that will allow them to better serve our community.

Yorba Park closed on January 23 for an extensive rehabilitation that will include re-grading the land, improvements to the dog park facilities, and redesigned landscaping. During the Yorba Park renovation project, access to the Santiago Creek Bike Trail through Yorba Park will be unavailable for periods of time depending on conditions and the need to maintain public safety. This project is expected to take 8 to 10 months, and finish sometime this fall. 

Shaffer Park is also scheduled to completely close for its renovation this summer.  In addition to an overhaul of the landscaping and irrigation systems, the community center, sports fields, and bathrooms will all receive upgrades, enhancements, or complete rebuilds.  We are expecting the Shaffer Park project to be completed in mid to late 2018.
