The culmination of 20 years of planning, fundraising, grants, and public input will come to fruition on Sunday, January 21 from 12 noon to 4 pm with the dedication of the newly completed Westlake Village Community Park.
The event will feature a formal ceremony at 12 noon honoring the partnerships, sponsors, donors and key players that made this regional facility possible.
The ceremony will be followed by youth sports demonstrations, photo opportunities, games, and a souvenir passport to visit all the features at the park, fitness equipment instruction, games, and a selection of free food including Jersey Dogs hot dogs, California Kettle Corn and In-N-Out burgers.
Prizes and food are available for the first 1,000 guests. Dodger Alumnus Ron Cey will be on hand to speak during the ceremony and available for photo opps until 1pm.
The approximate 18 acre site includes the city's park improvements and the 55,000 sq ft Triunfo YMCA facility, which is still work in process.
The Westlake Village Community Park contains eight acres of lighted synthetic turf athletic fields for soccer, football, baseball, softball and other sports, a walk/jog trail, skate park, picnic areas, outdoor volleyball and basketball courts, fitness equipment and children's play areas.
The park is located at 31107 Thousand Oaks Boulevard. There is a one-way entrance and a one-way exit off Thousand Oaks Boulevard that can be accessed by vehicle, bicycle, or sidewalk during park hours.
