Dream Big for Hale Park

Dream Big for Hale Park - We need your input!

Hale Park is Lodi’s oldest park and one of its busiest, serving families and people of all generations. But it’s aging and may not meet the neighborhood’s needs. What is your vision of Hale Park and what role should it take in the community?

A State of California grant program could make your vision a reality. Proposition 68, a $4 billion measure passed by California voters in June 2018, includes $255 million for local park acquisition, expansion and upgrades through a competitive grant program.

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services begins a series of public outreach events at Hale Park on May 22. Tell us what you want Hale Park to be. Once we understand the community’s vision, we’ll develop some final concepts with your help and submit an application for funding.

Your voice is important in this process, and will help us deliver an application that has broad community backing. With potential funding of up to $8.5 million per project, Prop 68 presents an opportunity we can’t pass up!

We look forward to seeing you – and hearing your suggestions – at an upcoming workshop!

All meetings will be held at Hale Park with a Spanish language interpreter:

  1. Wednesday, May 22 from 1-2pm (Concept & Workshop Meeting)
  2. Thursday, May 23 from 6-7pm (Concept & Workshop Meeting)
  3. Wednesday, May 29 from 4:30-7:30pm (Project Proposal)
  4. Saturday, June 1 from 12-1pm (Project Proposal)
  5. Saturday, June 8 from 12-1pm (Project Proposal)
DeBenedetti Park Project


Come join the City of Lodi for a community meeting regarding the development of the DeBenedetti Park Master Plan. The topic is an agenda item that is part of the regularly scheduled Parks and Recreation Commission meeting. An overall project summary, including project background, plan development process and outreach efforts will be shared. The Draft Final Plan will emerge from the public input received on at a workshop held on May 8 and will be presented to the Commission for additional public input and a final recommendation.
