SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- The City of San Luis Obispo finished major renovations to Islay Park Playground on Monday.

The renovations include added shade structures, additional picnic tables, more age diverse and universal play equipment.

The project also added an upgraded path of travel from the parking lot to the playground.

The project cost $564,000 and was funded by the City's half cent local sales tax, or the Local Revenue Measure.

The project helped replace outdated playground equipment and improved accessibility for residents.

“The Islay Park Playground Renovation project is an example of the City’s commitment to providing our community a safe and interactive place to experience the outdoors,” said Greg Avakian, Director of Parks and Recreation. “I want to thank the City Council, the Parks and Recreation Commission and neighborhoods surrounding Islay Park for their input on such an important community facility.” 

Signs are put up at the park advising people about preventive safety measures to slow the spread of COVID-19.
