Perris has broken ground on Enchanted Hills Park, a 22-acre facility that will be built near Interstate 215 and the 74 Freeway.
The site, mostly undeveloped, will be transformed into a neighborhood park with a multi-use field, play areas for toddlers and children, restrooms, picnic shelters, bridges, trails and a basketball court, according to a staff report.
Enchanted Hills Park will be built with an $8.5 grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
It is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.
“The council and city staff are always looking for ways to make Perris better for our residents, and parks is one way we can all do that,” said Michael M. Vargas. “We all need to do our part and take care of it because when it’s completed, it’s probably going to be one of the best parks in our city.”
