In 2002, after extensive community input and City Commission review, the City Council adopted the Robinson Park Master Plan. Phase I of the implementation involved a 2 1/2 acre expansion of the existing park and improvement of the site with new soccer and baseball fields, installation of synthetic turf, construction of new restroom and storage facilities, new sports field lighting, site amenities and parking lot. The City is now moving forward with the design and construction of Phase II, which will include a substantial rehabilitation of the existing approximately 19,000 sq. ft. recreation center.
Commensurate with this public process, the City completed submittal of a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Section 108 Loan Application. This CDBG funding is to be used for rehabilitation of the Robinson Park Community Center.
The City is moving forward with the design and community outreach phase of the Robinson Park Recreation Center Renovation. Opportunities for public input regarding the project are available at Community Meetings and at the Robinson Park Recreation Center Renovation Steering Committee meetings.
Design: The project architectural design team has started preliminary design efforts including survey of the existing building and equipment and information gathering regarding current and future program requirements.Community Outreach: The architectural design team conducted the first community meeting May 17, 2014 to gather community input and ideas regarding the renovation. Future community meetings will be held Saturday, July 26, 2014 and Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 10am to 12pm at the Robinson Park Recreation Center Multipurpose room, 1081 North Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena.
