Park & Facility Improvement Projects
The projects listed below are more routine deferred maintenance projects.

Spring Sports Field Maintenance:

Each year, as we emerge from winter, District staff begin to concentrate their efforts on the rejuvenation of sports fields. During this time, staff complete aerating, fertilizing, weed treatments, top dressing, dethatching and any other projects to help maximize the playability and overall performance of the sports turf. This type of maintenance occurs through June as some fields, specifically at school sites, aren’t available for this maintenance to occur until after school is let out for summer break. The photo below shows top dressing in progress at Community Park in April.


Oak Knoll Park Landscape Bark:

in March, California Cadet Corps assisted the District with a beautification project at Oak Knoll Park which included the installation of 30 yards of landscape bark in the shrub beds around the park. Interest in a volunteer opportunity like this one? Please contact the District Offices at 916-933-6624.

In late January, the Community Park Dog Park received 375 yards of new playground fiber (bark). The replenishment of the bark material will help control dust and provide a fun playing surface for visitors of the park.

St. Andrews Village Sign Replacement:

Due to significant weathering, District staff have replaced the ‘St. Andrews Village’ entrance sign at the corner of St. Andrews Drive and Tam O’Shanter Drive. The new sign, designed and built by Parks Staff, has been treated with a high-quality stain that should help it last for many years to come.

Promontory Park Softball Field Turf Renovation:

In late 2022, Delta Blue Grass Company completed sod renovations on both the Adult and Girls’ softball fields at Promontory Community Park.


Creekside Greens Park LED Lighting Upgrade:

In an effort to improve security and modernize lighting, the District installed new LED light fixtures at Creekside Greens Park. These lights come with a motion activation sensor that when triggered will brighten up the area where motion has been detected. These motion sensors have become standard in renovation of existing light fixtures and are installed at new park sites such as the new Blackstone Park, which is slated to open in 2023


Village Green Park Plant and Bark Replenishment:

In December, the District’s contractor installed 117 new plants at Village Green Park. In January 2023, 400 yards of landscape bark will be installed throughout the park to complete the landscape improvement project.

Community Park Gym Floor Annual Maintenance:

As part of the annual maintenance of the gym floor in the CAB at the  El Dorado Hills Community Park, Boberg Hardwood Floors was on site in December to re-coat the flooring to preserve the surfacing. This work was completed between Christmas and New Year’s to limit the impact on scheduled use of the gym.


Community Park Playground Fiber Replenishment:

In December, Applied Landscape Materials installed new playground fiber (bark) to the 5-12 year old playground at the El Dorado Hills Community Park

Bertelsen Park Fire:

Due to the extensive damage sustained and the loss of power to the building, the water feature will remain closed indefinitely. Please visit our other water feature at Promontory Community Park located at 2700 Alexandra Drive, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762. A temporary restroom and hand wash station has been set up in the upper parking lot for park visitors to utilize during the building closure. A cause of the fire is under investigation.
