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

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.

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

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.
