Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) announced the City of Moorpark will receive over $500,000 from the National Park Service Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) for the construction of the Arroyo Vista Recreational Trail in Arroyo Vista Park.
“The City of Moorpark has always been known for offering many opportunities for outdoor recreation, which helps make our community a great place to live and work,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “I am pleased that the National Park Service has recognized this fact and has provided critical funding to help construct the Arroyo Vista Recreational Trail, which will help create a seamless system of parks and will provide many health benefits to residents and families across the region.”
“We are extremely honored and excited to receive the grant award for the Arroyo Vista Recreational Trail Project,” Moorpark Mayor Janice Parvin said. “The additional amenity of a level, one-mile loop trail at our largest and busiest park is something our residents will enjoy and utilize each and every day.”
Moorpark will receive $537,635 from the LWCF for the construction of a new pedestrian trail with fitness stations, a new bike trail, and new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) pathways in Arroyo Vista Park in the City of Moorpark.
The LWCF provides matching grants to State and local governments to develop public outdoor recreation areas and facilities.
