Angels park addition gets OK

The Angels Camp City Council voted Tuesday night to buy nearly an acre of land adjacent to Tryon Park — an early Christmas present to a city lacking in park space. 

The property at 1246 Booster Way is owned by the Angels Camp Veterans Memorial District. The city and the district agreed upon a purchase price of $50,000, to be paid over a five-year period at $10,000 per year. The city will also pay closing costs. 

“It’s a timely and excellent acquisition,” said Vice Mayor Jack Lynch. 

According to the Angels Camp 2020 General Plan, the city owns four parks — Utica, Gateway, Tryon and the Angels Camp Museum picnic area — totaling 4.6 acres. Based on a ratio of park land to residents, the city has a projected shortfall of roughly 20 acres of park and recreation facilities by the year 2020.

Purchasing an additional acre next to Tryon Park is a “unique opportunity,” said Angels Camp City Administrator Michael McHatten.
