FORTUNA, CA. – Recreational parks in Fortuna may be expanding, and the public is weighing on what they would like to see.
The Friendly City is applying for a state grant to purchase a parcel adjacent to Newburg Park, as well as 7.2 acres of the east portion of the Eel River Levee, near Riverwalk Drive.
At a public workshop, recommendations were gathered from residents.
Some requests included an all-weather field in the Newburg Park area for children involved in outdoor sports.
At the Riverwalk parcel, ideas included a dog park, non-motorized river access, a picnic area, and an outdoor concert arena.
The grant application is due mid-February, and the city will be accepting ideas and comments until January 22nd.
