Mezes Park is re-opening in Redwood City on Saturday July 20, 2013 with a ceremony and festivities for children.
Organizers say the event will feature food, crafts and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The park, which bears the namesake of the person who donated it, is one of the first pieces of land to be donated for public use, according to Malcolm Smith, communications manager for the City of Redwood City.
In 1946, a tank was placed in the park as a memorial for the Americans who served in the war. It remains on the park grounds.

The festivities will take place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the park, located at 300 Standish Street in Redwood City.
