The story of Pedro Park started in 1914 when Italian immigrant Carl Pedro opened a luggage store. After decades as a thriving downtown business, the Pedro family closed the store, demolished the building and gave the lot to the city as parkland. It became home to an urban flower field with an iconic mural on the side of the derelict Public Safety Annex.

Fast forward to 2023 when the city demolished the Public Safety Annex so the park could finally be expanded to become downtown's newest green "lung" and community gathering place. Inspired by a gorgeous, community-driven design, the City appropriated $6M toward park development to take place in 2024-2025. Lush lawns, volunteer-tended gardens, lighting and plenty of gathering space will serve 10,000 surrounding residents - 24% of whom live at or below the poverty line.

The Conservancy is working with the Friends of Pedro Park to raise the $1.5M needed to add the features that will make this park a hub of community life: interactive water feature, seating areas, pavilion, playground and fenced dog run. 

Join us to create downtown's newest park!
