RESIDENTS OF SANTA CLARA can provide input on the design of two park rehabilitation projects, city officials said Aug. 12.

Surveys are open through Monday to provide input on the rehabilitation projects at Warburton Park at 555 Los Padres Blvd. and Henry Schmidt Park at 2250 Royal Drive.

Henry Schmidt Park had a train-themed playground and amenities that were removed for safety reasons. Rehabilitation includes a new playground, updated picnic areas and an outdoor area for sports that will accommodate Santa Clara’s increased population.

Warburton Park was dedicated in 1954 and the rehabilitation includes an inclusive and age-appropriate playground, picnic areas and amenities that also accommodate the city’s increased number of residents.

The restrooms and swim center are not part of the rehab project for Warburton Park. The survey for Warburton Park can be found at
