Garfield Park Master Plan
Garfield Park is situated on approximately 14.4 acres in northeast Napa and is home to the Napa Little League complex, a playground, and approximately 6 acres of undeveloped open space. Garfield Park provides neighborhood residents with access to open space while also serving as an essential facility for many of the community’s youth baseball leagues.
The Department of Parks and Recreation is in the final stages of creating a Master Plan, in partnership with the community, to provide a new blueprint for the park. The plan will provide an updated vision for the park, identify enhancements to both the developed and undeveloped areas, and provide clear direction to guide future development work.
Based on input from the community, from the Parks, Recreation and Trees Advisory Commission, from City Council, and from project stakeholders, the two design alternatives previously presented have been refined into a single Draft Master Plan. In general, this preference was based on a desire to keep the space as natural and open as possible. In addition to electing this design concept, the Council would like to see this plan incorporate the existing parking lot at the Napa Little League field so that it is open to the public, the crossing of Salvador Creek to be made at a more central location in the park, and the inclusion of the master gardener component into this design alternative.
An updated design for the Draft Master Plan for Garfield Park was presented to the Parks, Recreation, and Trees Advisory Commission on June 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in Napa City Hall Council Chambers. Comments received from Commissioners at the meeting, as well as additional feedback from the public, will be incorporated into the Final Garfield Park Master Plan, which will be presented to City Council for final approval.
