GLENDALE — After years of planning and anticipation, several upgraded park facilities are set to open in coming weeks — just in time for summer.
Residents already have access to a new and improved Maple Park, which received $3.5 million in renovations including new landscaping and an overhaul to the community building. The new building includes a modernized second-floor gym and a nearly 5,400-square-foot addition to make way for larger rooms and a computer lab.
Also in south Glendale — where city officials have long bemoaned the lack of available green space — the long-awaited $5.3-million public Pacific Park pool is on schedule to open June 4.
And near the city’s northwest border, a revamped version of Griffith Manor Park is set to open June 25 after being closed to the public for more than two years during the upgrades and other construction in the city’s San Fernando Road corridor.
