New Entry Kiosk, Renovated Tennis Center Next in EPIC! Campaign
We’re making improvements, thanks to donations to the Elings Park Infrastructure Campaign (EPIC!).
You see them throughout the park: from the newly landscaped main entrance, repaved roads and parking lots, to the hand-built sandstone walls and plantings of California oaks and other native plants.
Not to overlook something of vital importance to every visitor: renovated “touchless” bathrooms. Our four-legged visitors give “two-paws-up” to the new warm-water dog washing station.
Next up: renovation of the Los Positas Tennis Center, a new kiosk at the entrance, and the reactivation of a historic water well.
We’re more than half-way to our $10 million EPIC! fundraising goal. Help us make it to the finish line with a tax-deductible donation.
Support the Park
Elings Park is not operated by the city or county. We depend on user fees and public donations to maintain and improve the park. You can help.
