The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has granted a license for development and construction of a “tot lot” at the Castaic Sports Complex.

Tot lots are small playgrounds designed for children up to 5 years old.

The unanimous vote at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting allows the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation to enter into an agreement with the nonprofit organization North East Trees to install more than $500,000 in specialized playground equipment at both the Castaic Sports Complex and Jackie Robinson Park in Littlerock.

Plans at the Castaic Sports Complex, estimated at a cost of $388,000, include removing the existing playground for young children and replacing it with new slides and a swing set, as well as new components that emphasize learning numbers and letters and a “learning to walk” path, according to the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Work on both of the projects is expected to begin in March, with work estimated to be done in time for summer, according to the Department of Parks and Recreation.

The projects are financed through a grant obtained by North East Trees, an organization that works to create recreation amenities in resource-challenged communities.

The Castaic Sports Complex is located at 31230 Castaic Road.
