County park to get playground

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The county recently allocated $843,000 in park fees paid by developers for an irrigation system, grass, trees, park benches, fencing, a pathway, parking and utilities. More such park funding was identified to add playground equipment, Bell said. Park facilities have become an issue in the Santa Clarita Valley, where the city of Santa Clarita has ceased giving county residents equal access to its program. The city has extensive parks programs, swimming pools, ball fields and basketball and tennis courts, but county parks built since the city was formed are comparatively spartan. The 6.8-acre park site is next to Mountainview Elementary School, and under an agreement crafted in 1994, the school district will share it. The county obtained the park from developer Pacific Bay Homes in 2000. Work is expected to start on the park by the end of summer, with completion due in April. SAUGUS – Playground equipment has been added to the blueprint for a Saugus park planned for more than a decade and that now is finally becoming real. Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich directed the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation on Wednesday to add a playground to the proposed Pacific Crest Park in the Mountainview development. Residents had complained that the blueprint for the park lacked basic amenities such as a playground and restrooms. “We’re always adding something to a park,” Antonovich aide Tony Bell said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDowntown Cup Group BKeadue Rovers Reserves 3 Kilmacrennan Celtic Reserves 0Keadue had a good winning start to the Downtown Cup after this victory over Kilmacrennan at Central Park. Played in great conditions for the time of year, it was an even opening five minutes with both sides finding their feet. In the tenth minute Keadue had the first chance with Conor Greene heading into the keeper’s hands from close range and on the half hour Donal Rodgers beat the Kilmacrennan keeper to the ball before lobbing it just over the bar. Keadue were dominant in possession and were rewarded just after the half hour when Conor Greene’s long range shot spun in front of the keeper and into the corner, a fine strike for the opening goal. On forty minutes Prionnsais Forker’s free kick hit the bar for Keadue and they went in at half time well deserved to be front and could’ve been further ahead. At the start of the second half Kilmacrennan had more possession but it was still the home side making the chances with Cathal Duggan going close on forty seven minutes and Darragh Hanlon’s effort just over on fifty minutes. On fifty five minutes Kilmacrennan had a great chance to equalise when the home keeper was dispossessed and Adrian Doherty somehow managed to miss the chance with the keeper recovering to save his effort. Keadue didn’t have to wait too long for the second goal when, on sixty one minutes Mark Sweeney played a fine ball through to Darragh Hanlon and his run on goal left Donal Rodgers free to head in from close range. In the closing stages Kilmacrennan had more possession with Keadue hitting on the break and Darragh Hanlon proving dangerous. In the final minute the home side made it 3-0, Patrick Sweeney scoring from a few yards. A good display from the home side for whom Prionnsais Forker and Darragh Hanlon were impressive while Ryan Mc Brearty did well for Kilmacrennan.
