More parks will be built in the City of Chino in the next five years to fill a deficiency of 25 acres of neighborhood parks.
Projects Manager Carolyn Baltzer told the city council at a workshop May 16 that staff is looking to identify properties for future park development. Councilman Marc Lucio said there’s a lot of land on the south portion of Chaffey College Chino Campus that could be used for sports fields or an indoor gym.
Parcels of land in the north end of Chino that could be developed for park use and a potential dog park, said Councilman Chris Flores.
Mayor Eunice Ulloa agreed, stating that the dog park located at The Preserve is “a cute little dog park but it’s not for the whole city.”
Ms. Baltzer said a dirt lot at Ayala Park is proposed for a future dog park. Ayala Park is also proposed to receive a rose garden, tennis and pickleball courts, new lighting and signage, and an enhanced playground over the next five to 10 years, she said.
The council directed staff to bring back a list of potential parcels that can be used for parks.
