List of City of Stockton Parks
About half of the City parks have restrooms. Some larger sites have community centers and others have larger complexes, such as Oak Park's Billy Hebert Field and Pixie Woods at Louis Park.
Sandman Park Accessible Playground
The City of Stockton held a community meeting on August 7, 2023, to discuss new playground equipment that will be installed at Sandman Park and will include accessible play features.
All City playgrounds are designed for children ages 2 to 12 years old. Parents and families who will visit the park to use the accessible features provided ideas that will help determine playground equipment options to best meet the needs of our community.

Parks maintenance includes regularly scheduled mowing, edging, shrub trimming, fertilizing, litter/trash collection, graffiti abatement, weed control, minor tree work, and turf aeration. For parks with restrooms or play equipment, the contractor also provides janitorial cleaning and play equipment inspection. Please note that bathrooms found with vandalism and/or plumbing issues are immediately locked and unavailable.
New Restrooms at Four City Parks
New self-cleaning, contactless restrooms have been installed at Victory Park, Fremont Park, Stribley Park, and Oak Park. These new restrooms offer available facilities to extend time outdoors when using these City parks.
- Each restroom has two sides that are ADA accessible.
- Sink, hand dryer, soap, and toilet paper dispensers are all recessed into the wall and are activated with a wave of the hand.
- Sanitizer is applied at regular intervals throughout the day.
- After multiple uses, the door will close/lock and the facility will go through a longer sanitation cycle.
- Restrooms are available for use during the day; light displays on panels next to each door indicate the status, for example, open/closed, in-use/available.
- Funding for these facilities was provided through the CARES Act. The total cost of the site-preparation and the new restrooms is $1.4 million.

Columbus Park Renovations
Columbus Park is located at 401 W. Worth Street. The park has several amenities that are in a state of disrepair, have been vandalized, or do not meet the community’s needs. Improvements will include a new community garden, playground and swing area, restrooms, picnic shelter, public art, adult fitness area, basketball courts, ADA pathway and lighting improvements, and landscaping throughout the park. The final design is anticipated to be complete by March 2024. The anticipated construction schedule is August 2024 to March 2025. Project funding is from the Proposition 68 program grant.
Medians and Landscaping
