On Thursday, April 6, State Senator Mike McGuire joined Arcata City Council members and representatives from CUNA to announce $1,000,000 in state funding for the development of Carlson Park!
In total, the development of Carlson Park now has $2,500,000 in funding set aside for it! Upgrades will include pickleball courts, a non-motorized boat staging area, community event area, playground, public plumbed restroom, an ADA-accessible trail and river viewing platform, a trail network through the riparian area and gravel river bar, and more!
Most exciting of all... construction is set to begin this summer!
