Until the City of Stanton was able to convert a large elementary school campus into the large Central Park on Western Avenue, the only green space in town bigger than the proverbial postage stamp was Stanton Park.

On Tuesday night the city council voted 5-0 to extend its lease deal with Southern California Edison for use of the greenbelt with the landmark towers that carry the wires that provide electricity to the city.

The linear park, located west of Beach Boulevard (south of Katella Avenue) has, over the years hosted car shows, musical concerts and seasonal festivals such as the Easter Egg hunt for kids.

Under the terms of the lease – which will go into effect on July 1 – the city will pay $1,342.75 annually for a total of $6,713.74. The lease will run through June 30, 2028.
