Congratulations to my fellow BMLAers for the opening of El Cerrito Sports Park in Corona.  If you’re ever driving on the 15 Freeway South of the 91 Freeway keep your eyes open for this little project that was just completed and opened to the public.  Although this project was before my time here at BMLA a ton of work went into it and I got to see a lot of it.

1 Senior League ballfield, 2 Little League ballfields, 1 softball field, 1 T-ball / Multi-use field, 2 Full size soccer fields, 2 basketball courts, 2 tennis courts, 2 large group picnic areas, concession plaza, large children’s play area, and LOT’s of detail.  One of the best sports parks I’ve seen with regards to shade.  They placed dozens of large shade sails to ensure that spectators and picnickers wouldn’t be baking in the sun.

Orange County Great Park

What’s with the Giant Orange Balloon by the 5 and 133 Freeways?

As some outside the industry may not be aware Orange County is going to be the recipient of one of the largest public parks in history…dwarfing even New York’s Central Park and San Diego’s Balboa Park.  After 5 years of design, construction is about to begin on nearly 1,400 acres of land at the old El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Below is the design for the park (per the LA Times).  Very exciting, award winning, and history making project in our own backyards.

Below is a link to a e-booklet about the park’s latest status.
