PAJARO — Pajaro's largest park is slated to be completed in October.
On April 6, Monterey County officials and the community will bring out their shovels and celebrate the groundbreaking of the Pajaro Neighborhood Park.
The 4.9-acre parcel at 24 San Juan Road will feature a bandstand, a synthetic turf field for baseball and soccer, asphalt running/walking track, basketball/volleyball court, two separate play areas (one for 5- to 12-year-old children and another for 2- to 5-year-olds), a mural to be created by local school children, picnic areas and a parking lot. It will be open from dawn to dusk, according to Steve Snodgrass, president of the Pajaro/Sunny Mesa Community Services District board of directors,
The group will maintain the park once it is finished. Pajaro lacks a recreational space for the town's roughly 3,500 residents, he said.
"Pajaro is very much underserved in terms of open space," Snodgrass said.
In June 2010, the project took a large step forward when the ownership of the land was transferred from Granite Construction to the former Monterey County Redevelopment Agency.
