Grant will fund improvements at Lytle Creek Park and Community Center

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians continues to generously share it’s largesse with the City of San Bernardino, this time giving a $1 million grant to fund improvements to the 17.9-acre Lytle Creek Park and Community Center.

“Parks have traditionally been wonderful places for creating a sense of community,” said San Manuel Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena. “As gathering places for the community, they are also crucial for providing essential services and programs to vulnerable groups such as seniors. The Tribe and the City share a commitment to ensuring that Elders, who are highly respected in Indigenous culture, have access to supportive and accessible spaces.”

San Bernardino has reported a 40 percent increase in visits to Lytle Creek Park. Something the city says it attributes to minor improvements it recently completed at the community center.

The grant from San Manuel will allow the city to continue upgrades at the community center, like installing a wall partition to allow multiple activities to occur at the same time, upgrade seating, install new flooring and purchase furniture.

“We are so grateful for our partnership with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians,” said San Bernardino City Manager Charles Montoya. “Their unwavering support helps our parks and community centers become better places for kids, seniors, and families to come together and enjoy.”

Lytle Creek Park is a 17.9-acre park located at 380 South K Street in the City of San Bernardino. It features a community center, basketball, tennis, handball and volleyball courts, a splash pad and over 30 picnic tables. It also features two playgrounds and a walking track with exercise equipment. The Lytle Creek Community Center hosts Senior Nutrition Program Meals Monday through Friday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.
