Castro Park Athletic Field Renovation

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 9:05 AM by Suzanne Iarla

Construction to renovate the athletic field at Castro Park is nearing completion. The athletic field is now open and crews are currently installing the perimeter track and other park amenities. This renovation project was made possible through an MOU between the City of El Cerrito and the West Contra Costa School District (WCCUSD). The MOU was approved by the City Council in October 2014. Castro Park lies on property owned by WCCUSD and is maintained by the City of El Cerrito through a shared use agreement. The School District is paying up to $250,000 towards renovation of the field, while the City is managing renovation of the field and contributing additional funds for construction management and other contingency items.
