Improvements to the Neff Park playground equipment and walkways are now complete. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday at Neff Park in La Mirada to mark the milestone.

This project adds new swings, slides, climbers, ladders and other play features to the park. Musical themed equipment, such as chimes and drums, were also included. The play area offers two separate structures; one for children ages 2-5 and the other for children ages 6-12. Additional improvements include resilient rubberized accessible playground surfacing, new benches and a drinking fountain.  A cement path connecting the playground to the restroom and parking lot was also added for improved accessibility.

“Neff Park among La Mirada’s most popular parks,” says Mayor Pauline Deal. “The new playground will be enjoyed by children for many years.”

Funds were available from the Roberti-Z’Berg-Harris Grant program and the City’s General Fund.

“The Neff Park playground equipment is all new and in compliance with current accessibility and safety standards,” says Community Services Director Lori Thompson. “We are excited that our summer day camp participants will have an exciting new playground to explore this summer”

Neff Park is located at 14300 San Cristobal Drive in La Mirada. Neff Park covers ten acres and includes the Neff Home, George House, Neff Barn, a gazebo, basketball court, tennis court, horseshoes pits, a playground, and picnic areas.
