Miracle on 4th Street Park to Get $64,000 Renovation

The Miracle on 4th Street Park will be getting a much-needed renovation this month, city officials announced today.

The .14 acre mini-park, located at 1518 E. 4th Street, will be renovated with new walkways, landscaping, turf, irrigation, site furnishings, fresh paint on the playground, new playground safety surfacing and new tetherball equipment, said Jane Grobaty, spokeswoman for Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine.

“These improvements at Miracle on 4th Street Park will benefit children, families and the entire community,” Mayor Robert Garcia said. “Every time we improve a park we make Long Beach a better city,” Mayor Robert Garcia said.

To allow for the renovations, the park will be closed from today to late October, Grobaty said. The recreation programs associated with the park will continue in an adjacent activity room during the renovation period.

“Miracle on 4th Street Park is one of the most heavily used parks in the city despite its size, so the renovation will help this neighborhood gem shine even brighter,” said Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal, who represents the 2nd Council District.

The estimated cost of the renovation is $64,000, with funding from one-time infrastructure dollars.
