Urban Oasis in Citrus Heights Becoming a Reality

Posted: 4/10/2014

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - A ten-year dream of creating a beautiful natural park and preserve in Citrus Heights is being realized. What began with a small group of Citrus Heights citizens, the Sunrise Recreation and Park District (SRPD), and the City of Citrus Heights will become a reality by summer.

On March 24, 2014, the Sunrise Recreation and Park District (SRPD) officially broke ground on the Arcade Creek Park Preserve (ACPP). The newest outdoor recreational area in Citrus Heights, it will be accessible from Bonham Circle (Sunrise Boulevard) and Sun Hill Drive.

Representatives from the State Department of Parks and Recreation, Foothill Associates-Landscape Architecture, SRPD, County Board of Supervisors, State Assembly Office, City of Citrus Heights and City Council, joined in the groundbreaking ceremony at the site of what will soon be one of the children’s play pockets.

The park is located in Neighborhood Association 10 (SOAR). Led by SOAR president, Jayna Karpinski-Costa, members and over 100 other volunteers recently spent a day clearing out much of the underbrush to prepare for construction.
