More than a couple of local residents expressed their concern over the Coyote Creek Park that was celebrated by the City of Los Alamitos, with a ground-breaking ceremony in October of last year.
The perception, it seems is that some resident thought that the clearing of the brush and the patch of dirt left behind was the extent of the project. However, the park is far from finished and crews were at work on Wednesday, preparing the ground. The meandering trail appears to be taking form and crews will continue to plant drought-resistant plants and prepare the area, as it will eventually become a 2,500 square foot passive park, encompassing four acres. It will be used for recreation, but will have no designated sports fields.
According to city officials, the park is scheduled to be handed over to the city in early 2014. The Rivers and Mountains Conservancy, which provided the grant money to pay for the park, will provide training for city workers on how to care for the specialized plants in the park.
