In the coming year the Northgate Park group picnic area will get a facelift.

Manteca municipal staff has started working on detailed plans to replace the existing brick and trellis structure at the North Manteca community park located along Northgate Drive across from Neil Hafley School. When done it will resemble the picnic shade structure completed earlier this year at Lincoln Park.

Upgrades will also be made to the Northgate Park restrooms to comply with new Americans with Disabilities Act standards as well as to improve the looks.

The Northgate Park group picnic improvements are part of the City Council adopted capital improvement  program for parks.

Money has been set aside for several other projects that have yet to move forward due to other pressing priorities and staff availability.

The other projects in the adopted 2014-15 fiscal year budget that  have funds identified are:

uportable restrooms for the BMX track.

uongoing replacement of aging and unsafe playground equipment at various neighborhood parks.

ua dog park.

Identified projects but without funding identified are:

ua concession and restroom building in the upper portion of the storm retention basin at Woodward Park.

uinstalling solar security lighting at some neighborhood parks that do not have lighting.

The  city is currently working on a parks master plan. 

Manteca has also finished several projects that were part of the current fiscal year’s budget. That includes Woodward Park exercise stations, Morezone Field upgrades, and the Lincoln Park group picnic facility renovation.
