Cameron Park Planning Meeting: April 1st

UPDATE: THIS MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED. Check the project page for more information.

The City of Palo Alto is inviting the public to review and provide input on proposed improvements for Cameron Park at a meeting on Wednesday, April 1 at 6:30pm at the Matadero Room at Mitchell Park Community Center.

We posted last May about proposed improvements to both Werry and Cameron parks here in College Terrace. At the time, it was suggested that the work at Cameron Park would focus on safety and accessibility improvements to the park’s playground. If you want to learn more about these improvements, be sure to attend the city’s meeting on April 1.

Local Park Improvements Planned

One of College Terrace’s best features is that we have not one but four delightful parks in our neighborhood. Two of these parks will be receiving improvements in the near future.

Cameron Park, on Wellesley Street between College and Stanford Avenues, is slated for upgraded safety and accessibility features with a primary focus the park’s playground. These improvements are currently scheduled to happen this summer.

At Werry Park, on Dartmouth Street between College and Stanford Avenues, the playground will be replaced and receive ADA upgrades while the benches, tables, bicycle rack, and drinking fountain will be replaced as well. This project is tentatively scheduled to happen in Fall 2021.

There are also a pair of El Camino landscape improvement projects on tap near our neighborhood: one for general median improvements all along El Camino, and another focusing on pedestrian safety and landscaping between Stanford and Sheridan Avenues. These projects could begin as soon as this summer.
