CORONA — Locals can celebrate the unveiling $2 million in renovations at Hinton Park on Thursday, where there will also be a "Back to School" event with free bike helmet giveaways, officials said.
City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland funded the $2 million in upgrades at the park on 37th Avenue and 112th Street, which includes volleyball court, game tables, fitness equipment for adults and water fountains.
There are also new benches and planters on the north side of the park, according to the Parks Department.
Ferreras-Copeland, Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver and other officials will celebrate the park's opening Thursday, Aug. 25, at 3:30 p.m., followed by a back to school event between 5 and 8 p.m.
Kids can also snag free school supplies at the event.
Correction: Due to a Parks Department error, an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the park received $1.1 million in funds.
