GVRD Project:
GVRD began work in March 2014, tasked with improving 12 parks and granted $371,500. GVRD agreed to contribute at least $159,000 of in-kind contributions for labor and management, so that all of the $371,500 could be used for materials.

GVRD 100% of its funding by December 31, 2015, completing not only all 12 original sites in the contract, but came in considerably under budget and was able to increase funding for a new playground at North Vallejo Park adding a 13th site for park improvements and a new playground at Setterquist Park.

PAL Project:
PAL contributed $82,000 on top of the original PB grant of $278,143, and completed construction at the VCUSD-owned fields on Wallace Avenue. The ribbon-cutting was on June 17, 2016.
