(Santa Paula, CA) – The Santa Paula Creek Sports Park groundbreaking ceremony is happening on Friday, November 12 at 11am. This 37-acre outdoor destination will more than double Santa Paula’s current park space and provide a place for residents of Harvest at Limoneira and the general public to enjoy the natural environment along with endless recreation and activities for all ages. This ambitious project is unlike anything the area has seen before and will introduce a healthier and more active lifestyle to the community in close partnership with the City of Santa Paula and the Santa Paula Creek Sports Park Foundation.
Construction for the Santa Paula Creek Sports Park project is slated to begin in the winter of 2021. It’s anticipated that the park will be built in phases and, when completed, will consist of an amphitheater for concerts and live performances, gazebos available to rent for private events, soccer/football fields, softball/baseball diamonds, basketball courts, an inclusive tot lot, BBQ pavilions, a concession stand and more—ultimately bringing the vision of limitless options for open-air motion, activity and socializing to life.
This brand-new sports park will be developed by Lewis Community Developers and the Limoneira Company in partnership with the City of Santa Paula. It will be built on allocated land at the Harvest at Limoneira new home community north of Highway 126, which is nestled between beautiful citrus and avocado orchards historically owned and farmed by the Limoneira Company.
While the City of Santa Paula will operate this public park space, measures are being taken to ease the cost of maintaining and enhancing such a large project. The Santa Paula Creek Sports Park Foundation was recently formed to raise an endowment of additional funds necessary to adequately preserve and uphold the quality of on-site facilities for years to come.
This passionate group of locals is working to ensure the success of this first-of-its-kind development by getting the community involved in fundraising efforts, including naming opportunities for the entire complex and amenities, buy a brick and other local endeavors. Call (805) 933-0028 or visit SPSportsPark.org to learn more about the project details, donating and more.
As for the land this sports park will be built on, Harvest at Limoneira is a modern community of new-construction homes now selling in Santa Paula. Deeply rooted in agrarian culture and inspired by the surrounding natural beauty, this development introduces a fresh take on connected, sustainable living with five all-new neighborhoods, modern amenities, and shared green spaces.
