Tax money from Measure J will go towards installing newly installed playground equipment in Victoria Park

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on July 3 at 11 a.m. to celebrate the installation of new playground equipment at Victoria Park (2744 N. Via Miraleste in Palm Springs).

The event will begin in the park with opening remarks from Mayor Jeffrey Bernstein, Council Member Grace Garner, Measure J Commissioner Naomi Soto and Parks and Recreation Commissioner Jase Nagaia, followed by the community’s grand opening.

Following the ceremony, the City of Palm Springs will host a free KidsFest in the park for local children and their families, featuring live music, water activities, interactive games and delicious food.

This newly installed, highly anticipated playground equipment was funded with Measure J taxpayer dollars.

Measure J is a one-cent sales tax increase approved by Palm Springs voters in 2011. Its purpose is to provide a revenue source to maintain local community services while contributing to the economic revitalization of downtown Palm Springs.

For more than a decade, Measure J tax dollars have funded a number of important community projects that have transformed the city of Palm Springs. These projects have included hundreds of miles of street paving throughout the city, improvements and renovations to the dog park, police and fire stations, restoration of historic buildings such as the Welwood Murray Memorial Library and the historic Plaza Theater, construction of Downtown Park, and a variety of improvements to other parks and recreational facilities.
