Construction of South Fontana Park is scheduled to begin on Jan. 24, the City of Fontana announced in a news release.
The 18-acre public park, located at 16647 Santa Ana Avenue, between Cypress and Juniper avenues, will feature four artificial turf fields for soccer/football, sports lighting, a restroom/concession building, two storage buildings, playground equipment, exercise equipment, shade structures, pathway lighting, parking lot, new landscape and a raised landscape median along Santa Ana Avenue.
“This project has been a long time coming. I am very excited to see it come to fruition,” said Mayor Acquanetta Warren. “We are committed to providing high-quality recreation to our residents and surrounding region.”
Access to nearby residence/commercial business and highway traffic will be minimally affected throughout the duration of the construction period, the city said.
