Eureka Receives $30,000 Grant to Re-Design Clara May Berry Park into Inclusive Playground

EUREKA (KIEM) – The Clara May Berry Park will soon be getting a new look, thanks to grant funding from the National Recreation and Park Association and The Walt Disney Company.

The City received $30,000. Eureka was one of the twenty-five cities to receive funding.

The Clara May Berry Park sits right next to the Humboldt County library and will be transformed into a new sensory playground. It’s will also be an inclusive park for kids with cognitive disabilities.

The site will include rockers, climbers, spinners and a safety fence. It will also be an area where kids will not only play but they can learn about bees.

The city says, with the re-design of the playground they hope to bring back kids to the area.

The total cost of the project is $60,000.

Construction is expected to last until December.
