Background

Verdugo Park is a 38.68 acre park which contains a large grove of mature sycamore trees, numerous oaks, and a young stand of redwoods. A small dry stream traverses the west side of the park which adds to the character of the site. It is classified as a community park and offers numerous amenities including one ball field, one multi-purpose field, four and one-half basketball courts, a skate park, two playground areas, two horseshoe pits and two field areas. Additionally, there is a food service building, group picnic facilities and community garden.
