This project is a major renovation of the Fair Oaks Park, a 15-acre park facility originally built in 1969 and centrally located within Sunnyvale.
This project will incorporate an all-inclusive playground design through the Magical Bridge Foundation. The playground was approved by City Council for both conceptual design and funding on June 14, 2017 and July 11, 2017, respectively. It will be the first Magical Bridge playground in the South Bay.
In January 2018 the City awarded a contract for design services to Verde Design, Inc. The design phase kicked off in February 2018.
