|PARK AND RECREATION MASTER PLAN|
Bartlett Park - 19822 Beach Boulevard
Bartlett Park is a 28-acre area bounded by Beach Boulevard to the west, Yorktown Avenue to the north, Coldwater Lane to the east, and Adams Avenue to the south. The majority of the park is undeveloped, except for two acres containing the Newland House Museum, Newland Barn and a public parking lot. Seven acres of the park site are also utilized by the County of Orange for Flood Control purposes as a retention basin.
City Council has approved funding appropriation of a conceptual master plan and environmental assessment for development of Bartlett Park. Community Services staff has worked with a landscape architecture firm, David Volz Design, and with the environmental firm of Bonterra Consulting to prepare a Conceptual Master Plan for future development of the park and to evaluate opportunities and constraints of the site. Advertised public input meetings were conducted on October 14, 2009, and on January 13, 2010, with notification sent to property owners within 1,000 feet of the park, posting on Channel 3, and notices in the newspaper. On January 13, 2010, the Community Services Commission reviewed and recommended approval of this plan.

Master Plan Diagram
Worthy Park - 1900 Main Street
The Community Services Department plans to reconfigure the park to address the impacts created by the loss of acreage and to better accommodate youth sports and other recreational needs of the community. The intent of the project is to refurbish the area of the former softball field and demolish the former racquetball building. This will maximize the turf areas to accommodate a greater variety of youth sports, and provide much needed lighted practice fields.
Other elements of the project will include converting the existing basketball courts to pickle ball courts. Pickle ball is a fast growing sport and other cities in the area have created or converted courts for to address the demand. The tot lot area which was constructed more than 30 years ago is in need of upgrades and will receive new play equipment. A group picnic shelter will also be constructed near the tot lot. Finally, a 282 SF pre-engineered restroom building will be constructed to replace the ones being eliminated with racquetball building.
No additional lighting will be part of the project. The sports practice area will utilize the existing lights of the former softball field. Improvements for pickle ball will be limited to restriping and painting the existing basketball courts. The existing slab will remain in place, along with the existing light poles. No improvements are planned for the parking lot at this time.
