EL CENTRO — El Centro is pursuing a $1.1 million grant, which it will use to create a park on an empty retention basin on the southwest side of the city.

If awarded, Buena Vista Park will be built in the basin at the Buena Vista Subdivision, which is along the southern portion of Eighth Street between Manuel Ortiz and Palmview avenues.
