Our neighborhoods are better off with more safe green spaces. Great work by Councilwoman Emma Sharif and the rest of Compton leadership on the renovation of South Park! pic.twitter.com/0QySDHg0EA

The refurbished park, located at E Caldwell Street and S Chester Avenue, features $422,000 of improvements and was funded by the City’s local tax initiative, Measure P.
It boasts a new playground, 7-stations of outdoor exercise equipment, a new decomposed granite walking trail complete with doggi-pot stations and distance signage, an outdoor restroom, family picnic stations, two renovated basketball courts, and lighting upgrades to the youth baseball field and picnic area.
