Paso Robles will have a new park and playground next year.
Construction is slated to take six months, and the park is expected to open in spring 2014, according to the city.
In late 2010, the city received a nearly $2.6 million state grant to cover the total cost to design and build the park.
It will have play equipment for various ages, picnic areas and open space. The park is also designed to be water efficient and low maintenance, according to the city.
