Ribbon Cutting Celebrates Holly Creek Park Phase II Completion

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Saturday, February 4, 2012-  Holly Creek & Beldin Lane Estate neighbors of all ages joined Oakley Mayor Kevin Romick and Council Members Pat Anderson, Carol Rios, and Jim Frazier for the ribbon cutting ceremony that marks the completion of Phase II improvements to Holly Creek Park. The highlight improvement was the newly transformed 4 acre storm basin into a multi-use grass area.

Mike Pato, a long time resident of the subdivision who advocated for the Park prior to the city's incorporation was among the attendees stating, "I'm glad to see the Park come to fruition. We were disappointed it took 11 years for the completion of Phase I, due to it being County run. The credit goes to local control form getting it done."

 Phase II improvements were made possible after money was found in the 2010 budget explained Mayor Romick, in regards to Phase II he added, "Looking out today we see children out romping the grass and dogs in toe... it's a smashing hit already."

Equally ecstatic was 10 year old Kayla Reiss who helped cut the ribbon said, "I'm so glad that this park opened on my birthday. It has a nice lawn that kids can play on. I plan to run about and play tag."

 Other Phase II improvements at Holly Creek included the addition of a concrete pathway, spot patching of the decomposed granite walking trail, installation of irrigation into the basin, and the constructing of some gabion and retaining walls.
