Nathan Dubin Neighborhood Park

The Fiscal Year 2015/16 Capital Improvement Budget includes funds to master-plan, design, and construct a new 6.4-acre park site within the Lincoln Crossing Specific Plan.  The Nathan Dubin Neighborhood Park is off Hillwood Loop and Hamersley Lane, and bordered on the west by a nature preserve and paved trail.  The developer mass graded the site, constructed curb, gutter and sidewalk on three sides, extended water service stubs on two sides, and a sewer stub off Hamersley Lane. 

The City hired a Design Consultant - Stantec Consulting who developed three master plan theming options, and on July 14th Council approved moving forward with “Woodlands to Wetlands” – a concept that celebrates the natural wonders of the local ecosystem and ties into the adjacent wetlands and open space.  The Woodlands to Wetlands alternative includes the following features:

  • Adventure play area (ages 5-12)
  • Large swings (ages 5-12)
  • Tot play area (ages 2-5)
  • Small swings (ages 2-5)
  • Basketball full court
  • Natural turf play area (up to 12U soccer)
  • Water-wise demonstration gardens
  • Wetlands (drainage detention)
  • Restroom
  • Large picnic shelter
  • Small picnic shelter
  • Fitness stations
  • “Boardwalk” creek crossing feature
  • Dry creek feature
  • Drought-tolerant planting area
  • Animal sculptures
  • Accessible sidewalks and pathways

Stantec is currently in design, and bidding is scheduled for April 2016.  Construction of the improvements should commence in July 2016 with the park completed by early 2017.


Robert “Chief” Jimenez Community Park

The City has also budgeted funds to design and construct the second phase of the Robert Jimenez Community Park.  The 17-acre Park is bordered by Hwy. 65, Ferrari Ranch Road, and Groveland Lane.  The first phase included mass grading, a water service off Groveland, irrigation and landscaping along Hwy. 65 border, and irrigation mainlines to serve future play fields. Electrical service was pulled to a box in the middle of the site.  Two large cell towers have brackets for future Musco Field Lighting.  Eventually, reclaimed water from Ferrari Ranch Rd. will be extended into the park for irrigation purposes.

Stantec developed an updated master plan and three options for phase 2, and on July 14th Council approved moving forward with Lighted Tennis Courts with non-lighted Basketball Courts.  The Tennis/Basketball alternative includes the following elements:

  • Restroom
  • Plaza
  • Lighted gravel parking lot
  • 4 or 5 lighted tennis courts
  • 1 or 2 non-lighted basketball courts
  • Accessible sidewalks

Stantec is currently in design, and bidding is scheduled for April 2016.  Construction of the improvements should commence in July 2016 with the park completed by early 2017.
