How would you renovate Stephen Leonard Park?

Last year the City of Merced received over $800,000 from the State of California’s Housing and Community Development Department to renovate Stephen Leonard Park. The park, which occupies a square block deep in South Merced, has seen better days. The basketball court is riddled with cracks and the pool has been empty for years. Renovation plans include installing a skate park and replacing the pool with a splash pad, as well as adding security cameras. Reporters spent a chilly Saturday afternoon talking to visitors at Stephen Leonard Park about the new plans, and their memories of the place, on We’Ced.
