Prop 68 New Park Project

Statewide Park Program – Round 4

$395,300,000 to be awarded
Prop 68 Grants - State of California Parks & Water Bond 2018
California State Parks

Background

Since 1965, statewide grants administered by OGALS created and improved over 7,580 parks. We look forward to continuing this legacy with grantees to improve the quality of life for communities throughout California. Parks are unique places where children can play, families and friends bond, people exercise, seniors socialize, youth are mentored, cultures are celebrated, and everyone connects with nature.

For these reasons and more, vibrant parks funded by this program will create humane and healthier communities. Building successful parks in underserved communities is “a work of art.” SPP embraces meaningful engagement with local residents where park designs represent each community’s unique recreation needs and creativity.

SPP is the largest park related grant program in California’s history and possibly U.S. history, with over $1 billion in funding between the 2018 Prop. 68 and 2006 Prop. 84 Bond Acts.

To record the legacy of this program, ‘before and after’ site photos will be featured at parksforcalifornia.org. Thank you for your interest.
