The city of Pleasanton has announced a new Bernal Community Park multi-year sponsorship agreement that will change the name of the athletic grounds to Stanford Medicine Sports Complex.
The city's Library and Recreation Department said in the news release June 30 that the new sponsors for the park are Stanford Medicine and Pleasanton-based engineering firm, 4LEAF. One sponsor is returning too, Construction Testing Services.
All three of the sponsors will collectively contribute $630,000 over seven years to fund ongoing facility construction costs at the park, according to city officials.
"The city of Pleasanton is strongly committed to providing our community expansive access to quality parks and outdoor recreation areas," Heidi Murphy, director of the Library and Recreation Department, said in a statement.
"Upholding the high standards of excellence that have become the hallmark of our city's parks and recreation amenities requires support from organizations that share our love for this community. Through their generous support and continued partnership, each of our new sponsors has demonstrated a desire to invest in the betterment of this community," she added.
Stanford Medicine, which includes Stanford Children's Health, Stanford Health Care and Stanford-ValleyCare, secured the naming rights for the full sports complex, which had been named Patelco Sports Complex under a prior agreement.
The health system also received the naming rights for the newly rebranded "Stanford Medicine Stadium Field." The field was previously known as the Stanford Children's Health Stadium Field.
New park sponsor and engineering firm, 4LEAF, will receive the naming rights to Bernal Community Park's east field, which will be renamed "4Leaf, Inc."
Construction Testing Services, the Pleasanton-based special inspection and material testing company, will continue sponsoring the west field also known as the "CTS Field."
"The Library and Recreation Department has a vision of 'Inspiring a Vibrant Community,' which we continuously strive to achieve through an adherence to the organizational values of 'integrity, collaboration, customer service, inclusiveness and innovation,'" Murphy said. "We are pleased to be partnering with sponsors that share in our vision and values, and we thank the sports user groups and the sponsors for their support of Bernal Community Park."
