This park lies in the midst of one of San Diego’s most energetic neighborhoods, City Heights. The 0.15-acre, mid-block site is surrounded by an arts center, senior housing and mixed-use developments. Concepts were developed to create a mini-park within this pedestrian-intensive area and presented to the community for evaluation. The end product is a park/plaza which is truly symbolic of the richly diverse City Heights neighborhood and which serves as a focal point and gathering place for local residents. Park elements include benches, game tables, shade structures, custom tile mosaic, boulders, drought-tolerant trees and planting areas and adjacent streetscape improvements. Estrada Land Planning prepared the General Development Plan and Construction Documents.
