Stanton, Calif. (Dec. 8, 2021):  Officials announced today that $7.69 million in state funding has been secured to revitalize the Norm Ross Sports Complex located at 11111 Cedar St.  This park space is currently inoperable due to poor field conditions, inefficient lighting, and other outdated equipment. The improvement project will meet a critical need in the Stanton community and will allow residents to utilize the complex for outdoor recreation. 

To ensure the project was shaped by community-driven involvement, the Community Services Department conducted park design surveys and various community workshops with several community groups and residents.

The rehabilitation of the Sports Complex will result in a variety of healthy recreational and social opportunities for the City’s diverse population, including a new baseball/softball diamond, multi-purpose field, and multi-sport court for basketball volleyball, and pickleball. The proposed park design also includes a flat pedestrian trail, group picnic areas, enhanced community garden and dog park to further improve the versatility of the park space. Drought-tolerant landscaping and environmentally friendly design features will ensure that the project is sustainable during construction and beyond. This project is expected to be completed by March 2025. 

 “This opportunity to create a thriving park space would not have been possible without the passage of Proposition 68 and the leadership of California State Parks,” said Jarad Hildenbrand, Stanton City Manager. “This funding is a transformative investment in our community and we look forward to our continued partnership with the Garden Grove Unified School District to bring much-needed park, programs and services to our Stanton community.”
