Assemblywoman Laura Friedman presented the city of Glendale with a check on Oct. 4 for a long-awaited renovation of the more than 100-year-old, 8-acre Fremont Park, a project that has a requested budget of $933,000.
The process of renovating Fremont Park, located at 600 Hahn Ave., has been in the works since at least 2013, when funds to renovate the city’s oldest park were originally allocated.
The park currently features a basketball court, children’s play area, four horseshoe courts, picnic areas, eight tennis courts, volleyball courts and a wading pool.
Joining Friedman in support of this project were Glendale Mayor Dan Brotman, City Manager Roubik Golanian, President of Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation George Balteria, Parks, Recreation & Community Services Commission President Stephen Meek, Community Services and Parks Director Onnig Bulanikian and Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation Treasurer Paul Rabinov.
