Pacific Highlands Ranch park design meeting is March 5 in Carmel Valley

A design meeting for the new Gonzalez Canyon Neighborhood Park in Pacific Highlands Ranch will be held on March 5 at 7 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center.

Members of the public are invited to share ideas for the amenities and design of the 5-acre park at the end of Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway off Carmel Valley Road.

Schmidt Design Group and the City of San Diego will introduce the park site, project scope and preliminary diagrams illustrating the potential uses. Amenities will include a multi-purpose turf sports field, a children’s play area, multi-purpose courts, picnic facilities, security lighting and a comfort station.

The park will be joint-use with the future Solana Beach School District’s Solana Ranch Elementary School, which is set to open in fall 2014. For questions regarding the project, contact Mark Calleran, project manager at (619) 533-5197 or e-mail
