Ontario looks to build a big park

San Bernardino park to get overhaul

San Bernardino will spend nearly $1 million upgrading one of its parks.

Sal Saavedra Field, a 2.2-acre facility at 780 Roberds Ave. N, will get new fences, bleachers, parking amenities and a new scoreboard, according to a statement on the city’s website.

The westside park’s building and baseball field also will be renovated.

San Bernardino County approved the upgrades last month. All improvements will be paid for with funds from the county’s share of the American Rescue Plan Act.

“This is a great investment in our kids, our families, and our community,” said Supervisor Joe Baca, Jr., who worked with the city and the San Bernardino Pony League to develop the improvement plan. “My father played fast-pitch softball at Guadalupe Field and I spent many hours there growing up.”

Construction bids are expected to be out by the end of September, with work likely to start later this year, according to the statement.
