Cathedral City has been actively revitalizing its downtown district and commons area. Among the many projects that have been accomplished thus far are the new civic center complex and town square. This area includes city government offices, the police department, a cinema complex, a soon to open repertory theatre, restaurants, a parking structure, and recreational amenities such as the Fountain of Life, and the Cathedral City Commons festival lawn, which provides grass areas for outdoor enjoyment and festival events.
To further enhance the downtown, the City has dedicated vacant land next to the Civic Center for the Commons Heritage Park Outdoor Amphitheater.
In a continuing effort to encourage public use of this civic space, the city applied for and received a $2.8 million California State Parks Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Grant to create a new and interactive outdoor amphitheater space for cultural, entertainment and recreation events and activities. This grant must cover the cost to design and construct the theater and amenities, as well as all City costs for project and grant administration. There are no additional funds.
Currently, the Heritage Park subject site is comprised of a vacant lot at the northeast corner of Cathedral Canyon Drive and Avenida Lalo Guerrero within the civic center complex. The total size of the lots is 2.51 acres.
