Monrovia has been awarded a $250,000 county grant for improvements to Julian Fisher Park, Councilwoman Becky Shevlin said.
The grant from the Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Space District will be used to address a "laundry list" of potential renovations needed at the park, Shevlin said.
"It is a great start and we're going to continue to go out and find ways to fund improvements," she said.
Shevlin said the city hasn't yet determined exactly what improvements to make. The City Council recently discussed the need for new playground equipment at the park, which Shevlin said could cost $350,000.
Renovations to the park have been on the city's list of open space priorities for years.
