Pajaro Neighborhood Park is a five-acre park in the unincorporated community of Pajaro in Northern Monterey County at the site of an old construction storage yard. After facilitating several workshops with the community regarding visioning for their first park, the program was developed and includes a synthetic turf soccer/baseball field, jogging path around the perimeter, community art walls and interpretive signage, shade and picnic pavilions and barbecues for group rentals, a stage pavilion for community events, play structures, a full size basketball court, restroom buildings, bioswales to collect and clean water run-off, a storage building for maintenance equipment, a meeting and storage building for the local Boy Scouts troops, and a small parking lot. After successfully completing the park, it was immediately embraced by the community.
