McKelvey Ball Park Flood Detention ribbon cutting and celebration

Please join us as we celebrate the completion of the McKelvey Ball Park and Schaefer Park flood detention project.

Valley Water’s Permanente Creek Flood Projection Project reached a major milestone with the completion of the McKelvey Ball Park flood detention basin. McKelvey Ball Park was built as a dual-purpose facility, providing flood protection to downstream neighborhoods and recreational space for residents. Among the key project benefits are two baseball fields, a community room, an enhanced park and playground areas.

Valley Water, City of Mountain View, Mountain View California Little League and the neighboring community will gather together to officially dedicate the park and witness the ceremonial first pitch.  

When fully completed, the Permanente Creek Flood Protection Project will provide flood protection to approximately 2,200 properties in Mountain View and Los Altos, saving residents thousands of dollars on flood insurance each year.  

The Permanente Creek Flood Protection Project is funded by the voter-approved Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program.

Parking is limited. Please consider taking public transportation. Refreshments will be provided.

A copy of the event invitation is available for download. RSVPs are highly encouraged at [email protected]
