Park Capital Improvements


The Community Services Department’s Capital Improvement Section



The Capital Improvement Section of the Community Services Department is responsible for the acquisition, master planning, design & construction of parks and trails. These projects consist of facility improvements & upgrades to existing parks and trails, as well as the development of new park land. The Capital Improvement Section also oversees development of buildings such as gymnasiums and community centers.

Capital improvements are funded by fees paid by private developers who construct new residential projects within the city of Anaheim per the Anaheim Municipal Code section 17.34. In lieu of paying a fee to the City, Developers may dedicate and develop land for parks and recreational facilities. Capital improvement projects are also funded through a variety of federal, state, and local grants.

Euclid Library Outdoor Space

Euclid Library Landscape

Plans are in the final stages to create a flexible programming space on the south side of the Euclid Branch Library. This outdoor area will include a meandering pathway with benches leading to a gathering area with tiered seating for story times and special events. Landscaping, decorative boulders, and art will surround the pathway. This reimagined space is designed for patrons of all ages and abilities. Construction is slated to begin early 2021.


Cottonwood Park KaBOOM!

Cottonwood Park Improvement

The City of Anaheim is embarking on its 13th KaBOOM! playground build at Cottonwood Park. KaBOOM! facilitates projects where community partners come together to fund and provide labor and materials to install new playground equipment in parks. The play equipment at Cottonwood is almost 20 years old and in need of replacement. Edward Lifesciences Corporation is the funding partner for this exciting project, and Anaheim Family YMCA is the community partner. We look forward to working together with these groups, and community volunteers, to create an amazing play area in 2021.
