East Lawn Memorial Park
Grand Opening

March 8, 2019

On Friday, March 8, 2019, East Lawn Memorial Park was re opened, much to the excitement of its generous sponsors and the East Sacramento community at large. City Councilman Jeff Harris, resident and sponsor of the project, Kellie DeMarco of KCRA, and resident and sponsor Cindy Leathers of Coldwell
Banker spearheaded this project as a gift to the community they love so much.

Many improvements were made to the park, including a new picnic area, additional seating, a new drinking fountain, a new playground with wood fiber surfacing, a concrete park sign, inter-pretive sign, ADA accessible walkways, and new landscaping.

The park project could not have been possible without the generous support of the following sponsors:
MarketOne Builders
Sacramento Valley Dermatology Society
East Lawn Cemetery
Sutter Hospital
Dignity Health
Green Acres Nursery
The park rebuild was in the works for over a year. Completely
volunteer-based, the sponsors were able to secure over $121,000
in funding by local businesses and families, the rest by the city of
Sacramento.
