Barnes Bridge Park Update 11/20/17

We posted this question to the Town of Sunnyvale over the weekend - "We saw in the Sunnyvale newspaper that Sunnyvale has signed an agreement to take over the Barnes Bridge Park and at this point the park is closed. Do you have a schedule of what Sunnyvale is going to improve in the park and when it will be back open."

Here is the answer We received from the Economic Development Director, Traci Anderson of Sunnyvale.

Yes, The Town of Sunnyvale has signed an agreement to take over Barnes Bridge Park. As of right now the plans are to close the park down for an extended period of time (6-9 months or longer if need be). Town of Sunnyvale is trying to deter the events that have been happening in this location prior to putting in any significant investment. The future plans are still unknown at this time. We just need to give it some time. We understand there were good times had back there by families but there was a lot more bad that people just don't realize was back there and we didn't either until we went to start cleaning it up. We want it to be a great place for families to visit in the future.

So the bottom line is the park will become a great place for all hopefully sometime in 2018. We am confident that the Town of Sunnyvale will do a fantastic job in rebuilding the park.

We will try to keep everyone informed as things progress.
