Redwood City invites public input on Hoover Park redesign

in Community

Get ready to share your bright ideas for the Hoover Park Master Plan Project.

Redwood City officials are inviting feedback on future improvements at the aging park at two Community Input Sessions and via a survey. The Input Sessions will be held on Thurs., Jan. 26 from 6-8 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club and Sat., Jan. 28 from 10 a.m. to noon. Both meeting locations are at Hoover Park at 2100 Spring St., and residents interested in attending only need to come to one of the sessions.

“At each event, attendees can review site constraints, suggest types of play amenities, speak with the engineering team, and provide suggestions for other improvements to Hoover Park,” said the City of Redwood City’s Parks, Recreation, Community Services and Events Dept. in a statement.

Some of Hoover Park’s amenities date back to 1966, and its pool facility gets minimal use and so a new use of the space is under consideration, according to the city. Proposals include a “water spray play feature, a larger playground, picnic areas with trees, pathway and surfacing improvements, parking improvements and improved access to the park from Spring St, Hilton St and the sport fields,” according to the city.
