A particularly wet winter for San Diego may have caused some delays but the fences are finally ready to come down on the long-awaited Pacific Highlands Ranch Community Park.

A ribbon cutting ceremony originally set for March will now be held on Wednesday, April 10 at 10:30 a.m. Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Pardee Homes, city staff and community leaders will help snip the ribbon.

The park is located at Village Center Loop Road, between Canyon Crest Academy and Pacific Trails Middle School, across from the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch.

The 13-acre park includes a new recreation center, children’s play areas, basketball courts, dog parks, skate plaza and the city’s first free public parkour area and bike pump track.

A half-mile loop pathway connects all of the park amenities around a large five-acre grass field.

The newly-assembled Pacific Highlands Ranch Recreation Advisory Group, still in a temporary capacity, plans to host a big community celebration this summer with an outdoor movie night.
