Construction of $4 million project to renovate Leroy Park and Community Center in Guadalupe underway

City of Guadalupe

GUADALUPE, Calif. - For the small city of Guadalupe, the pandemic is not slowing down any of its projects. At least not at the Leroy Park and Community Center which is getting renovated.

"We’re excited and I think everyone in the community is excited," said Community Development Manager Sonia Rios-Venture of the City of Guadalupe.

This facility used to be the hot spot for all kinds of community activities until city administrators say it got a little run down.

"Due to the deterioration of the building it kind of stopped so we’re excited to bring that back to the community," said Rios-Venture.

Thanks to a multi million dollar grant, the facility is getting a makeover.

"The city received a little over $4 million grant, a CDBG grant to re-habilitate the existing building at Leroy Park in Guadalupe and the grounds that it sits on to allow for various types of activities," said Administrator Todd Bodem of the City of Guadalupe.

Some of the highlights to this project will include a barbecue section a playground structure and an open lawn area

The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021.

After that, city leaders say, the sky's the limit.

"It will be a city facility so we can use it for other events and activities as well. Possibly weddings. Who knows," said Bodem.
