Rededication Ceremony and Baseball Opening Day

Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks held a Rededication Ceremony and Baseball Opening Day at Bellevue Recreation Center on April 22, 2006. The ceremony marked the completion of the Bellevue outdoor improvement plan.

The forty-three year old City park recieved major changes and improvements thanks to a plan that was initiated by the Los Angeles for Kids Steering Committee. The improvements include a newly constructed play area, a walkway/jogging trail and picnic pavilion with tables and barbecues. Bellevue's two baseball fields have also been refurbished into multi-purpose fields with the installment of a new scoreboard, bleachers, dugouts and a batting cage.

The Department's General Manager Jon Kirk Mukri was in attendance along with Council President Eric Garcetti and many eagered Bellevue baseball players.

The $1,364,900 project was approved by the City Council in the 2002-2003 Proposition K Assessment.
