Public Meeting - Environmental Impact Report - Additional Lights and Burton and Highlands Parks
A meeting was held Tuesday, July 13th, 7:00pm at the San Carlos Library, 2nd floor community rooms. Another meeting will be held after the draft EIR has been prepared, possibly around fall 2017.
A walking path is available in Burton Park. The “Make Time for Fitness” walking program is in partnership with Sequoia Hospital, the San Francisco Giants and San Carlos Parks and Recreation. The path is one of several projects in partnership with Sequoia Health and Wellness Center and San Carlos Parks and Recreation to address the health of our community. The walking path aligns with the existing sidewalks in Burton Park, highlighting a desired route with measured distance. The path is designed to promote walking, with informational signs and distance measurements outlining a one-mile path (3 laps).
Burton Park is the oldest and best known of our developed parks. The central location and diversity of activities help to draw a wide spectrum of users and is heavy utilized year-round. It currently contains Madsen softball diamond, Flanagan baseball field, a large soccer field, three tennis courts, two full basketball courts, a tennis practice court, two horseshoe pits, the Kiwanis Recreation Building, two children’s play areas (one completely fence-enclosed and each with a play structure, slide, and swings), park benches, picnic tables, barbecue pits, and a turfed play area. The park has extensive landscaping throughout, including a number of mature trees.
Burton Park has been the location for both Hometown Days in the spring and the Concerts in the Park series in the summer.
The children’s play areas are very heavily used year round. The basketball and tennis courts are also quite popular.
