Featured in the Fresno Bee newspaper on March 20, 2009:

Trolley Creek Park is a special place because all of its play equipment, pathways, picnic tables, and restrooms are more than just “accessible” to visitors. Trolley Creek Park’s specialized features were modeled after those found in its sister facility, Sloan Johnson Oso de Oro Lake Park.

The park’s grand opening took place on July 9, 2004, and approximately 600 people turned out to help celebrate. Construction of this quality, $1.7 million park was funded almost entirely by grants from the State of California and donations of money, work, materials and time by local citizens and businesses. View the complete listing of generous donors who brought Trolley Creek Park to the citizens of our community.
