A new pocket park is slated to be built on a vacant property in San Pablo.

The Bush Avenue Pocket Park will soon feature swings, an exercise loop, fitness machines, shade structures, other play equipment and native plants, as envisioned by local residents, according to the city.

The pocket park project is estimated to cost $594,800, a majority of which will be funded by recent state grant allocations, the city said. The City Council approved allocating the funds to the project as part of the consent calendar at Monday’s meeting.

The city anticipates the cost to maintain the pocket park will be roughly $25,000 annually, which includes 0.2 FTE in city staff time and $5,000 in materials and supplies.
