Community News

Karl Rosario Park Community Mural

Colorful mural with "North Highlands" amidst flowers on a wall under blue sky.

Our FIRST mural in our park system has been completed at Karl Rosario Park! After many community outreach opportunities, the public voted that they wanted to see flowers on the 1200 square foot wall at Karl Rosario Park! Thanks to a local artist, after a week and a half of painting, we got just that.

Be sure to check out the park and see all the small details of bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and more! Some of the mural has been intentionally left blank! Come out to our Art in the Park event on August 13 from 6pm-8pm to leave your handprint in our "community garden" section! All ages are welcome!
