Local residents, organizations, businesses and the city’s Recreation and Parks Department recently teamed up to create a performing arts space in Krusi Park. The space is open to the public to express themselves. Many volunteers contributed to the effort including professionals who donated their services. To learn more about the motivation behind the stage’s creation and the team that poured their hearts into it, see Cindy Miner-Kapelke’s commentary in the editorial section.

Last Thursday, members of the Recreation and Park Commission took a tour of five current and upcoming park projects:  Jean Sweeney Open Space Park, Encinal Boat Launch Facility, the Alameda Point Sports Project, Krusi Park and Estuary Park.

The Jean Sweeney Open Space Park Committee announced its new website last week: www.sweeneyopenspacepark.org. Designed to display information about the park, the site includes information on the several topics.

n About Jean Sweeney: The site features an audio recording of Jean talking about her experience over the 10 years she, her husband Jim and community members worked to secure the 22-acre park that is named in her honor.
