Phase one of the Arguello Park renovation was accomplished in 2005-06 and reopened on June 26, 2006. Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening were held on July 22, 2006. The construction contract for Phase One improvements was awarded to Robert Bothman, Inc., totaling approximately $1,500,000. Phase One improvements include trails and hillside stabilization; erosion control, new trailheads; athletic field improvements including drainage, irrigation with a new field and backstop; main picnic area renovation, play equipment; accessible access and parking; and safety lighting and parking lot gates.

It is the largest and most uniquely diverse of our developed parks.  It combines a large, heavily used turfed play area with trails and open space. The trails wind through the hillsides on three of the park’s four borders. The turfed area is used by Little League in the spring for practices and games; A.Y.S.O. and S.A.Y. Baseball in the fall for practices and games; and by the Parks and Recreation Department for the summer day camp program.  The field house is used only for Day Camp activities.

Fire danger is an ever-present concern in the park with the extensive trees and foliage. Several efforts have been made over the years to reduce the most severe areas, including neighborhood clean-up days and through use of the county Work Furlough Program. Two privately owned lots exist within the park's boundary lines.
