La Mirada~Andrew McNally would be very happy as improvements to the property at his former residence, the Neff Park playground, equipment and walkways, are now complete.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday at Neff Park in La Mirada to mark the milestone.


La Mirada Mayor Pauline Deal is joined by her City Council counterparts and local children to unveil the new Neff Park playground.

This project adds new swings, slides, climbers, ladders and other play features to the park. Musical themed equipment, such as chimes and drums, were also included. The play area offers two separate structures; one for children ages 2-5 and the other for children ages 6-12.

Additional improvements include resilient rubberized accessible playground surfacing, new benches and a drinking fountain. A cement path connecting the playground to the restroom and parking lot was also added for improved accessibility.

“Neff Park among La Mirada’s most popular parks,” says Mayor Pauline Deal. “The new playground will be enjoyed by children for many years.”
