Located at the corner of Phillips Street and South Euclid Avenue, De Anza Park was first purchased in February 1926 for water purposes. In 1931, De Anza Park was named after Juan Bautista De Anza, first to open a route across the mountains and desert from Sonora, Mexico to the San Gabriel Mission, nucleus of the City of Los Angeles. Additional land was purchased during 1967 and 1969 for recreation and parks purposes. #125to125 #CelebrateOntario

Grove Memorial Park was an old rough and rocky dump ground that was given to the City in August 1953 by the Housing Agency for park flood control purposes. In 2010, as part of the Community Development Block Grant project in the western section of the park, high water usage turf was removed and a California friendly garden was installed. The garden includes a relaxing walking path with benches to sit on and enjoy the occasional humming birds. #125to125 #CelebrateOntario

Centennial Park is located on the northeast corner of Riverside Drive and Campus Avenue. The land was purchased from Lewis Homes of California in 1978 for recreational purposes. Centennial Park was developed in 1983 with park development funds. The park was originally named Campus Avenue Ontario Centennial Park which was dedicated in 1982, the centennial year for the City, but was officially opened in 1983. The park received its name after the City Council received name entries, as part of a naming contest. The extra-long name was given so that the parks location would be easy to find, now the park is just known as Centennial Park. #125to125 #CelebrateOntario
