According to The City of Merced Parks and Recreation supervisor Jeniffer Arellano, the city applied for a Proposition 68 grant to build a new park in North Merced.
Merced Parks and Recreation Department needs the help of the community in selecting the site for the park.
The City currently has three locations and only one will be picked.
Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting, residents can also share their thoughts and ideas for the park.
Jennifer Arellano also said, “Depending on what the community decides for the park if there are any remaining funds from the grant we might be able to build two parks”.
