Sports Center Coming to Rancho Los Amigos South Campus

Sports Center Coming to Rancho Los Amigos South Campus

Downey, CA—Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn voted to approve a design-build contract for a Sports Center on the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus site in the City of Downey.

The Sports Center is part of a larger plan to redevelop 70 acres of the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus.  South Campus was abandoned 30 years ago after Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center consolidated their hospital campus.

The project is to be constructed on a 5 acre site, which will include three multipurpose sports fields, sports lighting, restrooms, a concession stand, an equipment storage room, office space for staff, and a surface parking lot. When completed, this facility will be leased to and operated by the City of Downey.

Today, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a design-build contract with Ohno Construction Company for the completion of the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus Sports Center project.

The project is budgeted at $12.12 million.  $10 million will come from Supervisor Janice Hahn’s 4th District discretionary funding while the additional $2.12 million will come from the City of Downey and will cover aspects recently added to the project including synthetic turf, office space, and a multi-sport scoreboard.

    Thank you so much! As a resident born and raised in Downey, I spent many hours at Rancho volunteering during high school. We’ve had 5K and 10K events, pancake breakfasts, and learning to drive on Rancho grounds. At one time there was a Fire Station and a Post Office…we look forward to the renovation, the youth sports complex to benefit our community and bringing life and light back to Rancho!
