Take some time to peruse the Wish List for Graceada & Enslen park improvements.
Since this posting, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed between Modesto Neighborhoods, Inc., CANA & The City to proceed with improvement projects in the park. The pool & splash pad repairs are under way with the help of the Barber Family and Nancy Simas. This process will continue with the collaboration between CANA and the City of Modesto Parks, Recreation & Neighborhoods Dept.

Had fun at the 2017 fall CANA Root Beer Float & Splash Party on the Virginia Trail. The mist felt good, and there were many happy walkers and bikers who enjoyed their free root beer floats! 60 + floats were given out! Thanks Julie for hosting, and those who contributed the ice cream, root beer and cookies. Let's have another in 2018!
