Major Renovation, New Installations to
be Celebrated at Redwood City's Andrew Spinas Park
Redwood City, CA - December 29, 2003 -
Redwood City’s Andrew Spinas Park was built in the 1960s,
and was last renovated in the 1980s. Now, after a half-million
dollar investment, this park is state-of-the-art for the 21st
century. The community is invited to join the re-dedication
of Andrew Spinas Park on Saturday, January 24th at 9 am. Andrew
Spinas Park is located on Second Avenue between Bay Road and
Broadway (next door to Redwood City Fire Station #11). Light
refreshments will be served.
This event will celebrate the major renovation of the park
– the updated layout includes new swings and spring
toys, a fire engine climbing structure, a special waterplay
"sprayground" that will be very popular during the
summer, new restrooms, picnic tables, and benches, and new
turf and landscaping. Special tours of Redwood City Fire Station
#11 will commence immediately after the ceremony.
This is the fourth Redwood City park renovation to utilize
the architectural firm of MIG out of Berkeley, CA (the other
three are Stafford, Stulsaft, and Maddux – all highly
successful renovations). The contractor that did the work
was Scapes Inc. of Half Moon Bay, CA. Redwood City would like
to thank the Rotary Club of Redwood City, which made a significant
donation for a picnic table that was installed in the park.
This project was funded with Redwood City Capital Improvement
funds, allocated in the 2000-2001 fiscal year.
