Sierra Park North Development
The development and design for Sierra Park North (located off of Vacation Drive in Canyon Lake, CA) is an exciting opportunity to reshape an undeveloped space into an excellent destination for residents, pedestrians, bicyclists, youth, and others throughout the community.
The construction enhancements to this area includes a new bicycle pump track, a shaded children's playground area, shaded picnic areas with picnic tables and barbecues, and loop trails with fitness stations. The new family park amenity will meet current Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards and include ample parking spaces, sidewalks, and restrooms.
The City of Canyon Lake has approved the plans for the development of Sierra Park North. This project will encompass preparing the land area by grading, adding retaining walls, storm water retention, and utilities. Additionally, this project includes adding a new access drive and parking area. The park design incorporates many family-oriented amenities, including a pump track for bicyclists and skateboarders, shaded picnic areas with barbecues, children's playground area, loop trails with fitness stations, restrooms, and an abundance of natural landscaping to create a serene atmosphere.
Canyon Lake is a diverse suburban community with a unique family-oriented culture. Sierra Park North has been a noticeably undeveloped area in the community that has the potential to be an extraordinary amenity for all ages.
The design plan would transform Sierra Park North into a family park amenity equipped with a new bicycle pump track, a shaded children’s playground area, shaded picnic areas with tables and barbecues, and loop trails with fitness stations. The area will meet current Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards and also include restrooms, ample parking spaces, and sidewalks.
Management is preparing the Request For Proposal (RFP) to put this project out to bid. Engineers estimates are in excess of $1,500,000 for the entire project. The Canyon Lake POA Bylaws, as currently written, restrict the spending of more than $800,000 on one project in a two-year period. Hence, the measure included on the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Members & Election of Directors ballot as noted below.
There is a ballot measure included with the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Members & Election of Directors notice to vote in favor or against authorizing the Canyon Lake POA to spend an amount not to exceed $2,000,000, with a 10% contingency, from Capital Improvement Funds to fully develop Sierra Park North.
Should the ballot measure not get approved, this project will be turned into a multi-phase project that could take up to six years to complete.
