Rio San Gabriel fields reopen

DOWNEY – The sports fields at Rio San Gabriel have reopened to the public after extensive renovations, including adding 250 tons of soil to prevent sinking. Work crews also raised five rotor heads, added 1,500 pounds of perennial rye mix for athletic fields, and 50 yards of seed topper.

The park’s basketball courts were also renovated last month.

“We want our residents to be able to enjoy good quality parks and we are committed to utilizing the resources we have available to make necessary improvements,” said Mayor Fernando Vasquez.
