Accessibility and Utility Upgrades at Johnson-Springview Park

Article By Alyssa Mielke

Johnson-Springview Park was recently upgraded to better serve residents who frequently use the park and its facilities, and more improvements are underway. Ten new handicap spaces in the parking lot were completed in June after the need for additional ADA parking was identified. Every new space allows for senior and disabled residents to better access Johnson-Springview and its facilities.

In addition to the parking lot upgrade, new ADA-compliant sidewalk is being installed to allow a path of travel to and from the park from 5th Street. This will ensure that all residents are more easily able to enter the park and enjoy its offerings of fresh air, open space, and the Rocklin community. The sidewalk allows for residents to walk along the edge of the park near the parking lot on even concrete instead of grass.

The City also recently completed installation of a new sewer lift station, increasing holding capacity to better serve the needs of the park. The restrooms near the pavilion are lower in elevation than the street, so they require a pump to drain the water. A lift station pumps the water into the sewer main at 5th Street to prevent backups and keep everything flowing smoothly.

The new lift station features increased holding capacity and fail safe controls, which will also assist in accommodating the Splash Pad planned for the park.
