Costa Mesa City Council members checked out a $1-million state grant this week that will help cover the costs of planned renovations at the Lions Park playground.

State Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach) officially presented the funds — in the form of a traditional oversize check — during Tuesday’s council meeting. 

Petrie-Norris secured the money as part of the state budget that Gov. Gavin Newsom signed in June. Costa Mesa also has applied for additional state grant funding for the project through the Proposition 68 parks and community revitalization program
