Culver Park project to kick off soon – WKVI Information Center


Construction of the Culver Park project will begin soon.

Culver Park Superintendent Amber Cowell told Culver City Council members Tuesday night that the Office of Community and Rural Affairs has released grant funding for this regional Stellar project. A pre-construction meeting will be held with Thomas Excavating on August 3. Cowell hopes the groundbreaking ceremony will take place later in August.

The Farmer’s Market will move during construction, and Cowell has been in contact with those officials to coordinate the change.

The improvement area is near the Culver Lion’s Club in Culver Town Park. There will be improvements to the parking lot, a plaza with additional seating and improved accessibility with sidewalks, additional grass, space for the farmer’s market, redevelopment of a playground, installation of a covered bench swing, a show stage and cornhole boards.

The contract was awarded to Thomas Excavating for $531,000, which is $45,000 more than the amount budgeted for the project. However, the Culver Redevelopment Commission has pledged additional funding to ensure funding is available to complete the work.

The project is expected to start after the beach season and could end in 2023 with anticipated delays in the arrival of equipment.
