Volunteers Spend Day Upgrading Elkhorn Park

Elkhorn Park is getting a makeover thanks to the efforts of more than 100 volunteers from Bayer Crop Science.

Crop Science crews work alongside City of West Sacramento Parks and Recreation staff to improve the quality and safety of the park by:

  • installing steel edging along a decomposed granite trail
  • spreading granite over the trail
  • installing four new benches
  • filling in concrete pads
  • preparing a new exercise area
  • rebuilding and repainting two horseshoe pits
  • disassembling an existing playground
  • removing bark in the playground area to prepare for new play structure
  • painting the new shade structure

City Council member Quirina Orozco helped kick off the event by thanking Crop Science, with global headquarters in West Sacramento, for helping spruce up the park and also for being a great community partner.

  •  The California Parks and Recreation Society
