Preisker Park's gets a new picnic area
By CAMILLIA LANHAM
Preisker Park’s new picnic and grove area is poppin’, thanks to a partnership between the Kiwanis Club of Santa Maria and the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department.
A $15,000 contribution and many hours of volunteer labor went into building the sites, which are now open.
A press release sent out by Recreation and Parks stated that “this picturesque setting is ideal for a small family event,” but can also hold up to 75 people.
There is enough space for family reunions, birthday parties, and company picnics.
The area includes a new Santa Maria-style grill, five large picnic tables, a stainless-steel tabletop work area, and a piñata pole embellished with the Kiwanis logo.
The Kiwanis Grove and Picnic Area was established to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Kiwanis Club of Santa Maria. The memorial grove honors past Kiwanis members who, through their hard work, enhanced our community.
Visit the Recreation and Parks administrative office to reserve this picnic site for an event at 615 S. McClelland St. Preisker Park is located at 330 Hidden Pines Way.
For more information about the newest addition to Preisker Park, call the parks department at 925-0951, Ext. 260.
