Urgent Action Requested

Dimond Park has an opportunity to have funding included on the 2022-2024 City Budget for two FODP priorities:

  • ADA Access - improvements that provide dignified access for all park users, including wheelchairs and walkers, strollers and bicycles

  • Playground/Tot Lot improvements to repair and replace worn, broken equipment and surfaces

Your Voice is Needed! 
Tell the Mayor You Support Funding for ADA Access and Playground Improvements

Playgrounds are in disrepair

The playgrounds are in dire need of investment to rehabilitate and renew the equipment and surfaces.
