From aÂ Thought to an ideaÂ to reality, South Gate is incorporating a lot of great projects to attract people to our city. Not only is the Dog park approved, We also got an approval for a shopping mall in the corner of Atlantic and Firestone Blvd.
Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina has announced that work on two South Gate parks projects will now go forward as a result of two grant approvals. The city of South Gate will receive a total of $500,000 for the construction of a dog park as well as for improvements towards South Gate auditorium.
â€œMoney for the parks is always good,â€ said Paul Adams, director of Parks and Recreation for the city of South Gate, who confirmed that the city now has the money to carry out these projects in full.
The South Gate Auditorium will receive a total of $350,000 for its enhancements, which will include a sound system, better stage lighting, video screens, a multimedia projector, and new flooring, among other things.
The dog park will receive a total of $150,000 for 4,000 square foot off-leash dog park. New benches, a water fountain, new signs and a fence are among the additions that are said to be included in this addition.
â€œNow that we have the money will be having workshops with out parks commission to determine where it should go,â€ said Adams
Both South Gate Park and Hollydale Regional Park are the two candidates for the dog park.
The grants are part of $1.8 million Prop A funds that are being extended to 5 different park projects in the first district of Los Angeles County.
