City of Lancaster Opens First Phase of Downtown-Area American Heroes Park

Lancaster, CA. 3/22/2011 – Today, the City of Lancaster announced the opening of portions of American Heroes Park, a 12.5-acre recreation facility located within the revitalized downtown area.

Named in honor of those who have given their lives to protect American’s freedoms and liberties, American Heroes Park features numerous amenities for community enjoyment.  The site includes playgrounds; baseball and soccer fields; basketball and handball courts; two gazebos; nine trellis structures; an adobe monument; a restroom building; and three parking lots.  Memorial plaque walls on the premises can be inscribed at future dates, providing a place of reflection and gratitude for local fallen military, police and fire personnel.  Additional facilities will be available on the site after the park is fully completed.

“American Heroes Park is a splendid addition to our downtown area,” stated Lancaster Vice Mayor Ronald D. Smith..  “New and existing residents, business people working nearby, local students, as well as visitors from the community and beyond are now able to enjoy this wonderful community-gathering place.  This park is the perfect complement to The BLVD and the surrounding revitalized neighborhoods.”

American Heroes Park is open from 6:00am to 10:00pm daily.  Located just one block north of The BLVD, the park is centered in downtown Lancaster and bordered by Kettering Street, Fern Avenue, Jackman Street and Date Avenue.
