18 Feb Board approves improvements for Del Valle and Richard Rioux Parks in the Santa Clarita Valley
LOS ANGELES – At today’s Board of Supervisors meeting, board members approved more than $1.2 million in funding for improvements to Del Valle Park in Castaic and Dr. Richard Rioux Park in Santa Clarita.
“These upgrades will further enhance Del Valle Park and Richard Rioux Park as popular recreational hubs for community members, in addition to improving accessibility and availability for our residents with disabilities,” Supervisor Kathryn Barger said.
Del Valle County Park, with five scenic acres of open space, will receive $737,000 in funding to install a shade structure and to update park amenities to accommodate those with disabilities, including park entryways, restrooms and playground structures.
Dr. Richard H. Rioux Memorial Park offers 17 acres of fields in Stevenson Ranch and hosts many youth sports and senior programs year-round. Nearly $500,000 was allocated for the removal and replacement of fencing throughout the expansive park.
These projects will further the county’s strategic efforts to foster vibrant and resilient communities and to support the wellness of the Santa Clarita Valley community.
