Baker Park

The dedication of Baker Park in 1997 culminated years of work by community members to transform the park, acquired with Open Space Bond Program "opportunity fund" dollars, into a little gem of a park in an underserved part of the city. The park complements the curriculum of neighborhood daycare and after-school programs.

Baker Park has a small play area with wood chips, a pedestrian path that meanders through it, and Totem Pole made from a monkey puzzle tree.
