Phoenix’s Neighborhood Services Department recently conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the installation of 38 new LED lights at Palomino Park.
In partnership with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, NSD invested nearly $390,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to install the lighting.
The goal: “Ensuring the parking lot, walkways and ball courts are safe, well-lit environments,” city officials stated in a release.
The lighting project also will provide added safety benefits to neighboring facilities, including Palomino Primary and Intermediate schools and the Metropolitan Phoenix Ed Robson Family Branch Boys and Girls Club, according to the city.
Overall, the city is investing nearly $2 million in park lighting this year, officials said.
