Parks and Open space
San Gabriel suffer's from a critical shortage of public park space. In 2012 we were able to secure a $4.4 million CA State Park grant to construct the Marshall Park site. Marshal is the first new park in San Gabriel in over two decades.
I worked with the SGUSD to secure a joint-use agreement so that residents are able to use school sites after school hours to expand areas for recreation.
If re-elected I will continue to pursue every opportunity to secure new park space.
Vincent Lugo's La Laguna Playground is the only CA historic playground in the CA State registry. Thanks to the Friends of La Laguna for their work in protecting and preserving the park.
Smith Park is home to the Smith Park Pool, tennis courts, the new Kaboom play area and shade structures with BBQ's. A great place for family fun.
