[ARCHIVED] City breaks ground on Marshall Park project

The City of San Gabriel held a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 8 to celebrate the beginning of work on the new Marshall Park.

This is the first new park space built in the city in at least two decades, and it will be the first park located south of Valley Boulevard. The 2.4 acre park will be built on the site of the old John Marshall Elementary School, which closed in 2012. The project was made possible through an agreement with the Garvey Unified School District.

The Marshall Park project is funded by $4.6 million a grant the city received in 2010 through the Proposition 84 Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Program. This is the largest grant of its kind the city has ever received. 

The project, supported by the community for years, will bring a neighborhood park to an area lacking in open space. Once completed, Marshall Park will increase our city’s total open space by nearly 10 percent

The park's features will include a walking/jogging path, multi-purpose areas, a synthetic turf field, picnic shelters, playground areas, outdoor fitness equipment, restrooms and security lighting.

Marshall Park is scheduled to be complete by summer 2017.

For questions or more information, call the Public Works Department at 626.308.2825 or the Community Services Department at 626.308.2875.
