Groundbreaking on new Del Mar Mesa Park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday morning for the long-awaited Del Mar Mesa Neighborhood Park, which will cover 3.7 acres southeast of Carmel Valley.
   
When completed, the $1.25 million park will feature a multi-purpose turf field, basketball court, children's play areas, landscaping, restrooms, picnic facilities, shade structures, a horse corral and parking area.
   
"I am extremely pleased to see construction begin on this park,'' said City Council President Sherri Lightner, who represents the area.
   
"The community has worked diligently with my office and city departments for several years to see this project come to fruition,'' Lightner said. "It will be a great addition to the surrounding neighborhood.''
   
Planning for the park has been in the works for a dozen years, but the project ran into multiple delays, including new regulations for stormwater runoff and a need to update architectural drawings.
   
The project is estimated to need between eight months and one year to complete.
   
Lightner, Park & Recreation Director Herman Parker, other city officials and area residents are expected to attend the ceremony that begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Duck Pond Lane and Del Vino Court.
