Councilmember O’Donnell To Update Residents on Orizaba Park Renovation at Community Meeting
2012-05-15 · By Editor
Fourth District Councilmember Patrick O’Donnell is inviting residents to Orizaba Park this Saturday, May 19 at 9:00 a.m. for a comprehensive update on the park’s renovation and planned multi-million dollar community center.
“This place is more than just a park,” O’Donnell said. “I have worked for years to secure the funds and gain support from the community in order to make these improvements to Orizaba Park a reality.”
Orizaba Park holds a firm place in Long Beach’s history and continues to serve as an anchor for the communities in the West end of the Fourth District. The area around Orizaba Park even takes its name, Zaferia, from the old Red Car stop that connected Long Beach to the rest of the Los Angeles Region until the 1940s.
Located at East 14th Street and Orizaba Avenue, the grounds of the park were recently renovated and reopened to the public earlier this year in January. Residents are encouraged to attend this open-aired community meeting to learn more about the exciting new facilities and amenities to come, on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at Orizaba Park 1435 Orizaba Avenue (at 14th Street),. For more information, call (562) 570-6918.
