The City of Porterville has been awarded $367,500 for the Fourth Street Community Park project through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grant program.  California State Parks recently announced recommendations to the National Park Service for $45 million in Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grants for 16 local park projects.  Funding will provide public and private agencies the ability to acquire land and/or develop recreational amenities.

The Fourth Street Community Park project will create a new community center and park adjacent to the Rails to Trails corridor off of Henderson Avenue at Fourth Street which is set for completion in 2024.  With the additional LWCF grant funding, the project will expand to include construction of a splash pad, challenge course, mini pitch soccer arena, pump track, and ADA accessible playground.  Each recreational feature will also have dedicated shade structures. In addition, the project will also include construction of outdoor exercise stations, kickball wall, picnic shelter, parking lot, and landscaping and lighting throughout the park.
