Barsotti Park -- park redevelopment
Project Summary & Public Benefits
The 2008 bond measure provided funds to fully develop the 3.75-acre Barsotti Park, which THPRD acquired in 1996. Park design was based on public input, regulatory factors and park management needs. Initial ideas included a softball field, a multipurpose field, a loop trail, community gardens, play equipment and a community garden.
Barsotti Park opened to the public in January 2014

THPRD is excited to announce that Barsotti Park opened to the public in January, 2014. Purchased from the Barsotti family with funds from the 1994 bond measure, the new neighborhood park has many unique features, including the district's first youth tennis court, designed for players age 10 and under.
Other features include a multipurpose field that can accommodate baseball or softball practice, as well as organized youth soccer and lacrosse activities.
The park’s most distinctive element is a viewing area behind the backstop featuring four large mounds. A hard-surface trail around the park’s perimeter weaves through these unique landforms to other amenities, including a covered picnic area, a 20-plot community garden (with four ADA-accessible plots), and a play area built on a resilient rubber surface. The play area includes separate sections for younger and older children. They sold the property to the Park District to ensure that the land remained a gathering place for new families for years to come.
Barsotti Park is located at 16610 SW Blanton St. in Aloha.
