CONTINUING AND FUTURE FOCUS
SAN BENITO COUNTY adopted a new Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan in 2010. In the Plan is a provision for a new River Parkway and Regional Park. Our families will have more spaces close to home to go adventure, refresh and play!
THE RIVER PARKWAY will consist of bicycling, equestrian, running, and walking trails in and around San Benito River from Anzar High School in San Juan Bautista to the San Benito County Historical Park south of Tres Pinos.
THE REGIONAL PARK is a proposed county sports complex and recreation facility to be located south of the San Benito County High School.
SAN JUAN BAUTISTA'S GENERAL PLAN calls for expanded recreation, cultural, and exercise possibilities that are in the planning process, and we plan to be there to help them "R.E.A.C.H." their goals.
AROMAS, TRES PINOS, AND PAICINES will be kept in the loop as we are made aware of all San Benito County related needs.
R.E.A.C.H. SAN BENITO PARKS FOUNDATION is actively engaged in promoting the projects in the Plans of the whole of San Benito County and its Cities.................HERE! WHERE WE LIVE!!
