On July 23, 2022, we celebrated the completion of Phase One of the California Nursery Historical Park Master Plan with a Ribbon Cutting Celebration with City of Fremont Parks and Recs Community Service Director, Suzanne Wolf, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei, and Fremont's City Councilmembers. Lots of time and effort went into successfully renovating the 20 acre park which included the move of LEAF Center site to the park's northeastern corner.
