Dr. Nathan Dubin Neighborhood Park

The Dr. Nathan Dubin Neighborhood Park is off Hillwood Loop and Hamersley Lane, and bordered on the west by a nature preserve and paved trail.  The park was design with a “Woodlands to Wetlands” concept that celebrates the natural wonders of the local ecosystem and ties into the adjacent wetlands and open space.  The Woodlands to Wetlands alternative includes the following features:

  • Adventure play area (ages 5-12)
  • Large swings (ages 5-12)
  • Tot play area (ages 2-5)
  • Small swings (ages 2-5)
  • Basketball full court
  • Natural turf play area (up to 12U soccer)
  • Water-wise demonstration gardens
  • Wetlands (drainage detention)
  • Restroom
  • Large picnic shelter
  • Small picnic shelter
  • Fitness stations
  • “Boardwalk” creek crossing feature
  • Dry creek feature
  • Drought-tolerant planting area
  • Animal sculptures
  • Accessible sidewalks and pathways

Construction of the improvements have been completed and the park has been enjoyed by many as of Memorial Day weekend; with the exception of the Soccer Field.  The sod still needs to complete the establishment period which is anticipated to end in September 2017. 


Chief Robert Jimenez Community Park

The 17-acre Park is bordered by Hwy. 65, Ferrari Ranch Road, and Groveland Lane.  The first phase included mass grading, a water service off Groveland, irrigation and landscaping along Hwy. 65 border, and irrigation mainlines to serve future play fields. Electrical service was pulled to a box in the middle of the site.  Two large cell towers have brackets for future Musco Field Lighting.  Eventually, reclaimed water from Ferrari Ranch Rd. will be extended into the park for irrigation purposes.

Lighted Tennis Courts with non-lighted Basketball Courts have been completed along with the following elements:

  • Restroom
  • Plaza
  • Lighted gravel parking lot
  • 4 or 5 lighted tennis courts
  • 1 or 2 non-lighted basketball courts
  • Accessible sidewalks

The park improvements have been completed and has been open to the public as of mid May 2017.
