Flood Park Project Transitions From 'Reimagine' To 'Realize'

In 2022, the Flood Park project will transition from reimagining to realizing a new park for the community. Building upon the vision developed for Flood Park in 2015, we will ask the community to join us again to help design the 2020 Landscape Plan features. Beginning in early February and continuing to the fall, we will host a variety of events, including meetings, community events and online activities to gather your ideas.

"Know Your Zone" For Safety

With intensifying drought and wildfires across Northern California, officials and first responders are promoting a “Know Your Zone" campaign, which encourages residents to enter their address into the Zonehaven platform to identify the zone in which they live. The zone code will be used when alerting the public and coordinating 'hyperlocal' evacuations during fire and other extreme weather events.

Parking Lot Safety

Park staff patrol parking lots, but taking your own precautions against theft is always advised. Familiarize yourself with precautions you can take to protect your valuables and vehicle.
