There are two project proponents: the Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD) and the Police Activities League (PAL). With PB funds, GVRD will carry out improvements at 11 City-owned parks and 1 GVRD owned site. PAL will build restrooms and a new snack bar at the soccer fields they lease from the Vallejo City Unified School District.

Original Project Proposal
Exhibit A: Project Scope
|Project Updates: 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 has expended $270,650 (or 73%) of funding to date, completed 9 of
the 12 original sites in the contract, and is considerably under budget, allowing them increase funding for the playground improvements at North Vallejo Park by $20,000. Because of additional cost savings, a 13th site is expected to be added by December 2015.
PAL contributed $45,000 on top of the PB grant of $250,000, and has has completed design of the new restroom to be installed at their soccer fields on Wallace Avenue. The project is expected to be completed by December 2015.
