BURTON CHACE PARK
MARINA DEL REY, CALIF. – July 6, 2010 - Beaches and Harbors announced today improvements to Burton Chace Park have been completed.
The project commenced February 2010, with sidewalks and walkways grinded down, cut out, and refinished to eliminate trip and fall hazards, walkways and planters redesigned for better pedestrian access under the bridge, replacement of aging vault covers, sprinkler system upgrades to achieve better coverage, installation of new bike racks, anchoring systems fabricated to house summer concert tents to mitigate tripping hazards and damage to underground utility lines, an above ground electrical cabinet installed adjacent to the anchoring systems for easy power source access, new video surveillance cameras throughout the park, and an intercom system for park personnel to remotely activate gates for emergency access.
These improvements will help enhance the park experience for the public and come just in time for the summer season. Burton Chace Park is located at 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey and is operated and managed by the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors.
