Located on Village Center Loop Road and adjacent to Pacific Trails Middle School, this 13-acre park provides all the recreation space you could want. At the center of the park is a 5-acre multi-purpose turf field, perfect for holding practices and games for a variety of sports. Kids can also explore the playground and a discovery play area. And, a first for San Diego, there is a free public parkour area and bike pump track. With so many activities, this park is sure to fit all your family’s outdoor needs – even your furry family members will have a place to play at the small or large dog park.

Residents, Pardee Homes and the city of San Diego all worked together to design this state-of-the-art park. Jimmy Ayala, Division President of Pardee Homes San Diego, spoke at the ribbon-cutting ceremony and said, “The opening of this long-awaited community park marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Pacific Highlands Ranch. We are pleased to be a part of this collaborative process and to provide this new, multi-functional amenity and gathering space for all the community to enjoy.”

Across the street from the park is The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, with a central promenade connecting the two and providing easy access to all of the conveniences the master-planned community offers. And, in addition to the outdoor space, the park has a 17,000-square-foot recreation center with three new community spaces for residents, including a gymnasium, multi-purpose building and outdoor courtyard.

This is the 23rd park to open under Mayor Faulconer’s pledge to build or improve 50 parks in five years, and another amazing addition to San Diego and Pacific Highlands Ranch. It provides the community with a safe place for the entire family to get outside, get active and spend time together. Now open to the public, you can visit today!
