New Barney Schwartz Playground - Ribbon Cutting!
Community members gathered on Wednesday,January 31 to celebrate the official opening of a new playground at Barney Schwartz Park. Mayor Steve Martin was joined by members of City Council along with representatives of the REC Foundation, the Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, Hispanic Business Owners, the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce and City Staff during the ribbon-cutting event. Community Services Director, Julie Dahlen led the crowd in a milk and chocolate chip cookie “toast” to the new play area. Children in attendance received a mini sand pail filled with cookies and sand toys.
The replacement cost for the fifteen-year-old playground which suffered from worn play features and weather related deterioration was $250,000. Funding for the playground was made entirely possible through the Dale Schwartz Memorial Endowment Fund for Barney Schwartz Park. The fund, managed by the Paso Robles REC Foundation has also provided shade structures, a barbeque pavilion, trail mile markers, lighting maintenance and parking lot paving at Barney Schwartz Park. The play zone was installed by R.E. Schultz Construction, Inc. from Orange, CA. Freda Berman, Maintenance Services Superintendent and Project/Events Manager for the City of Paso Robles, oversaw the six-month project.
