Community Invited to Avenue of Heroes Ceremony, May 20
One of the military holidays celebrated each year is Armed Forces Day. This day is set aside to pay tribute to and recognize the military service members at home and across the seas. How fitting this special day coincides with Coronado's own Avenue of Heroes Ceremony.

This local military recognition honors “hometown heroes” and the community is invited to join the honorees and their families on May 20 at 10:30 am at the Coronado High School Performing Arts Center. The Avenue of Heroes program has honored 230 military service members since its inception in 2014. We look forward to recognizing fifteen more exceptional individuals this weekend. 
Centennial Park Improvements Focus on Gazebo
This week, crews began repairs on the gazebo at Centennial Park. While it may be a smaller improvement project, this work will make a big difference. The rotted beams are being replaced and the structure will be refurbished. The area around the work has been fenced off during the repairs. The project is anticipated to be completed by June 5. 

Other improvements to the park include the recently completed restoration of the Ferry Booth. Add this to another reason to head outside during the longer, warmer days! Visit these improvements to this beautiful bayside park.
First Phase of Tennis & Pickleball Court Resurfacing & Improvements Completed.
The first phase of the Tennis and Pickleball Court Resurfacing & Improvements Project was completed earlier this week, with the opening of the Cays Park basketball court and pickleball court five. The next phase has already started and includes resurfacing courts two through four. Once the work is finished, crews will move to the Tennis Center Complex and then to the Coronado Public Library courts. 

The project includes resurfacing and restriping of tennis and pickleball courts at City facilities and other court improvements.
