San Diego City Council President Lightner, Park & Recreation Director Herman Parker, Public Works staff, and members of the community gathered Aug. 18 for the groundbreaking of the new Del Mar Mesa Neighborhood Park. The park is located near the intersection of Duck Pond Lane and Del Vino Court (formerly Carmel Mountain Road) and will total about 3.7 acres. When completed, the park will feature a multi-purpose turf field, basketball court, children’s play areas, walkways, landscaping, drainage improvements, picnic facilities, furnishings, shade structures, comfort station, horse corral, parking area, security lighting and accessibility improvements.
“I am extremely pleased to see construction begin on this park,” stated Lightner. “The community has worked diligently with my office and city departments for several years to see this project come to fruition. It will be a great addition to the surrounding neighborhood.”
