Heron Landing Park 

(10-19-15) The 100% (Final) submittal for the Heron Landing Community Park construction documents was sent to all reviewing agencies last week. The District will be going before the Board at their November meeting for approval to issue the Bid Notice to Contractors on November 19th. The District anticipates awarding a construction contract in December/January with construction beginning on the park site in February (pending weather conditions). 

(04-27-15) CRPD is starting the submittal process to the City for plan approvals for Phase One of the park site. Phase One includes development of the park site including fields, parking lot, landscaping, sport courts, play equipment and splash pad. The future community building will be Phase Two. Start of construction of the community building is likely to lag several years while park development funding from new housing accrues and/or supplemental funding sources are secured. In the meantime CRPD continues to work with the architect on future building plans. Pending City permit approval, we expect the construction of the base park to start in late Fall of 2015 and will take a year to complete. 

(07-29-14) The final concept plan for Heron Landing Park was accepted and approved by the Board of Directors at their December 2013 meeting.  Below is a link to view the final approved park concept master plan:

Heron Landing Park Approved Concept Master Plan

The construction document and permitting process is expected to be complete by early 2015.  Construction on the park is expected to begin in Spring 2015 and will be complete by the Summer of 2016.  The District will continue to provide website updates throughout the park development process.

If you have questions about any of our current developments and projects, please contact Park Planning and Development Manager, Laura Taylor or Park Planner, Cristina James in the Park Planning and Development Department.

Cordova Community Pool Repair Efforts

(04/27/15) The District applied for a Land Water Conservation Fund Grant in February 2015. State Parks is still reviewing applications and expects to notify applicants in early summer. In the meantime, District staff is researching and pursuing other project funding options, including the City of Rancho Cordova’s Measure H grant program. The restoration of this valuable resource, the Cordova Community Pool, continues to be a District priority.

(11-19-14) In February 2014 District staff retained an aquatic consultant to identify existing problems, potential solutions, and realistic costs for the renovation of the aquatic center at Hagan Community Park. Some funding has been identified for this project, but more is needed to perform the work required. In late summer staff began the process to apply to the Land Water Conservation Fund Program for additional funding. A community meeting was held on November 18, 2014 to continue public outreach efforts for this project.
