Clean California Ribbon Cutting and Opening of Main Beach Restroom


 | June 12, 2024

SANTA CRUZ, CAJune 11, 2024 The City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation, in partnership with the California Department of Transportation, will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly renovated Main Beach public restrooms at 120 Beach Street on Friday, June 28, 2024, at 10 a.m.

The Main Beach Restroom renovation project, funded by the Clean California program led by Caltrans and the Parks and Recreation Facilities Tax, increases ADA accessibility, provides cleaner restrooms, and upgrades site furnishings. The building features a collection of three tile mosaic wall murals by local artist Taylor Reinhold titled Pacific Dream.  The art project was supported by the City Arts Recovery Design (CARD) Pilot Grant Program.

“The City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Department is proud to be part of such an effective collaboration. It led to the successful completion of an improvement project for the public that aligns with our mission to deliver clean, safe, equitable, and accessible park amenities,” said Tony Elliot, City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Director.

Caltrans District 5 Director Scott Eades said, “This is a great example of how Clean California is positively impacting our neighborhoods and encouraging local pride in our public spaces.”

This $1 million project was made possible by Governor Gavin Newsom’s Clean California program, a historic, $1.2 billion, multi-year clean-up effort led by Caltrans to remove trash, create thousands of jobs, reclaim, transform, and beautify public spaces, and engage and educate communities.
