Zacharias Park is being used as a staging area and will remain closed through 2022.  Garcia Bend Park and the boat launch facility will remain open and available for public use, however the western portion of the parking lot will be used as a project staging area. The eastern portion of the parking lot will remain open and available for public use.

Pre-construction activities that include the relocation of existing utilities and removing vegetation located directly in the construction footprint will occur between December 2021 – April 2022. Major levee construction activity is anticipated to occur between April 2022 – November 2022.

2022 Lower American River Erosion Protection Construction – Access at Glenn Hall Park
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will be constructing river bank erosion protection measures along the Lower American River levee between CSUS and Glenn Hall Park in 2022. The work will require the use of a limited portion of Glenn Hall Park for access onto the levee. The park, including the soccer/softball field and public pool, will remain open and available to the public throughout construction. USACE will be constructing a temporary access road that will necessitate the closure of the eastern side of the Glenn Hall Park parking lot and the use of a strip of grass area just west of the soccer field, approximately 16’-20’ in width from the edge of the existing sidewalk. The temporary access road will be fenced and flaggers will be present when construction traffic is present. Access into and use of the western side of the parking lot will remain available.

Levee pre-construction activity, including vegetation removal is anticipated to occur between January 26, 2022 – March 1, 2022, followed by river bank erosion protection construction starting in late spring or early summer 2022.

Construction is underway on a City project within Albert Winn Park. Selective demolition started in April 2021 on a cold-shell remodel of the existing Winn Park Building, construction work to be complete in summer 2022, followed by a landscape renovation complete by early 2023. The improvements will include new stairs, accessible lift and accessible restrooms on both floors. The building will need significant improvements after City work to make the building ready for a tenant. City is working directly with Midtown Association to coordinate with and minimize interruptions to existing Wednesdays at Winn and other events that take place in the park. There will be noise and dust during this work, so thank you for your patience as the City works to activate Albert Winn Park.
