What & Why?
Andy’s Unity Park grew from a community’s commitment, perseverance and belief in the healing power of a park. The plan for the park remembers the life of Andy Lopez, who was tragically killed at the site and also celebrates community unity and youth empowerment while providing a much needed neighborhood park with a variety of features for neighborhood residents and families to gather and play.
Design and engineering drawings and bid documents were completed and put out for competitive bidding in October, 2016, and four bids were received on November 9, 2016. Due to a bid protest following the evaluation period, the County Board of Supervisors elected to reject all bids in December 2016, and directed Regional Parks to revise and re-release the project plans for bidding.
Updated plans and bid documents were advertised for bidding at the end of January 2017, and the project was awarded in March to the low bidder Argonaut Constructors. Construction began on May 30, 2017 and was completed in May 2018. The opening celebration was held on June 2, 2018.
