Streamland Park will be impacted by the project due to construction activities and necessary dam repairs. While the City has been attempting to clarify the details of the forthcoming disruptions to Streamland Park with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), currently the following known impacts include:

  • Now through September 2022: Streamland Park will be closed intermittently for soil testing, contractor site visits and other activities by the USACE.
  • October 2022: The park will be fully closed due to construction activities and necessary dam repairs. Once the project is complete, the widening of the dam will cause the park to lose 92% of its land including the basketball courts and baseball fields.

There may be an opportunity for some of the park, which is on federally-owned land, to again be leased by the City of Pico Rivera for recreational use by the community once the project is complete; these negotiations are ongoing with the USACE.
