Newly Themed “Music at Sunset” Playground at Sunset Park is Now Open!

Sunset Park

The City of Temecula unveiled the fourth reconstructed playground in a series of several newly themed playgrounds that are being reinvented at parks throughout the City.  The theme for Sunset Park, located on Camino San Jose in Redhawk, is “Music at Sunset”.  On April 11, 2018, approximately 100 third graders from neighboring Redhawk Elementary School were Temecula’s first children to play with the sounds of music as they explored the new playground featuring musical instruments, climbing bars, swings, a brilliant yellow sun cover, and much more!

Renovations citywide are occurring at various parks where playgrounds have exceeded their lifespan.  These improvements have been made possible utilizing Measure S funding. The following parks have been completed over the past five months:

•Nicolas Road Park, 39955 Nicolas Road, themed “Pirate Ship Party”

•Vail Ranch Park, 32965 Harmony Lane, themed “Old Temecula”

•Butterfield Stage Park, 33654 De Portola Road, themed “Nature’s Tree House”

Temecula Mayor Matt Rahn stated, “The City is renovating its aging infrastructure, including parks and playground equipment to ensure they are safely up-to-date. This is an excellent opportunity to improve the design with innovative playgrounds for the next generation to enjoy.” 

Next on the list to be reconstructed is Veteran’s Park located at 30965 La Serena Way, where a “fighter jet” theme of outdoor fun will be completed in time for summer.
