The City of Lancaster, the hub of the Antelope Valley, is just one hour north of Los Angeles. This bustling city of over 160,000 offers an array of outdoor experiences, local shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Along with that, Lancaster is home to fourteen parks throughout the city including Lancaster’s massive, 35 field, National Soccer Center, that attracts visitors from around the world.
This year the City of Lancaster started the search for a new company to maintain their nearly 8 million square feet of parks as well as the city’s over 6 million square feet of streetscapes, medians, parkways, government facilities and parking lots. This was a very important decision for the city. They had high hopes for the quality of the landscape and also wanted to find a company that would come alongside the city and partner with them.
Over the summer they made the switch to Terracare for the next 3 plus years! Our crews are currently serving the community each day and following through on our promise to the city and its residents. We are excited to collaborate with the City of Lancaster as we strive to build relationships and beautify grounds.
Livermore is a city in California located approximately 45 miles east of the San Francisco Bay area. The city is home to over 90,000 residents, and boasts over 40 parks, open spaces, as well as miles of trails and bike lanes. In 2013 the city was looking to hire a landscape contractor to maintain their parks and streetscapes throughout the city. Terracare was chosen and has been on the ground maintaining the landscape since.
This year the Livermore Area Recreation Park District (LARPD), a division of the City of Livermore, made the decision to put out two separate groupings of parks and facilities out for bidding. The first of these encompassed five different sites including the popular Robert Livermore Community Center and Ravenswood Historical Site. The second grouping included seven different parks and trails throughout the city. Happy with all the work Terracare has done throughout the city, LARPD, decided to continue the partnership and award both of the extensions on to TCA.
Starting in July, Terracare began maintaining the first five properties and come September, will also begin work on the next seven parks and trails. We are very excited to continue this partnership with Livermore and are pleased to provide the residents and visitors a pristine landscape that they can enjoy and take pride in!
