Kellogg Park

The people of Ventura's Westside neighborhood needed a park. But with little open space and a very limited budget, they waited years for the right opportunity. Finally, in 2012, a former auto-body shop—two acres with park potential—came onto the market. The Trust for Public Land helped the city acquire the property for the public.

Today the site is bare earth behind a chain-link fence—but that's soon to change. We are looking forward to working with the city and local residents in a series of workshops to design a park with the features the neighborhood wants most. Plans could include a playground, garden, trails, a Fitness Zone® outdoor gym, and picnic benches—everything the neighborhood needs for a central gathering place to play, exercise, and socialize.
