Parcel One Renovation Update:

Phase 2 Construction is finally complete!

Phase 2 includes the concrete pathway, center courtyard and water fountain feature for Bixby Park. Pathways include lighting bollards and the center circular courtyard around the fountain includes a new raised planter. The Phase 2 work also incorporated two new hydration stations for the adjacent dog park. Woof!

Dear Friends of Bixby Park,

We hope that everyone is taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and are taking precautionary measures to ensure that the safety and health of everyone is protected. Please follow the directions that are recommended by City, County, State, & Federal Government to resolve this grave crisis.

Parks, Recreation, & Marine has taken appropriate action by restricting public events as well as closing areas that attract high concentrations of people to maintain focus on health & safety concerns.

Cabin fever is real and one of the best ways to alleviate the stress of being indoors is to take a walk in wide open space such as our local public park, Bixby Park.

Walking, hiking, biking and running in City parks and along the beach is still allowed. However, the public is strongly encouraged to maintain at least six feet of physical distance between persons and, where possible, avoid touching foreign objects and surfaces with your hands -- consider using your elbow. Surfaces may include handrails, water fountains and crosswalk buttons. Where contact cannot be avoided, do not touch one’s face until able to wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Stay Healthy & Safe,

FOBP Board
