Richmond Wins $8.5 Million State Park Grant to Develop Harbour-8 Park.
March 3, 2020: Pogo Park partnered with the City of Richmond and The Conservation Fund to secure a highly competitive $8.5 million Prop 68 parks grant to expand and improve Harbour-8 Park on the Richmond Greenway. The grant funds will make possible a new community center, a children’s play area, two ziplines, a bbq/picnic area, and public art, as well as security cameras, lighting, and a restroom.
According to the State’s website, the Prop 68 park grants are “the largest investment in grant funding history targeted for underserved communities.”
Pogo Park’s Harbour-8 Expansion Project will create an improved park and playground for children to play. The Project will also create jobs and training opportunities for 150 community residents living in one of Richmond’s most under-resourced communities.
