Please join us at our upcoming public meetings:
Updates from past public meetings:
Boulder Oaks County Preserve: County Parks staff have been preparing a public access plan for Boulder Oaks County Preserve in Ramona, which includes a planned trail system. An open house showcasing this trail system and how it fits into the overarching public access plan was held Wednesday, Sept. 13 at the Ramona Library. Seventy people attended. We continue to seek grant funds, and we look forward to implementing the recreational opportunities presented, as new funds become available. Click HERE to view the PDF of the planned trail system.
Borrego Springs: The community of Borrego Springs will soon have a new, 16-acre park. View the FAQ sheet based on several community meetings for additional information. A groundbreaking event took place Oct. 21 - watch the video! This project is slated for completion late 2018/early 2019 and will take place in conjunction with the build of a new library and Sheriff's station.
Calavo County Park: The County recently acquired 9 acres of land north of Calavo Road near Jamacha Blvd. The property is relatively flat, with good access from streets and contains disturbed land that is ideal for recreational use. It borders multi-family housing developments, a natural wildlife refuge, and is close to schools. Attend this meeting to learn more about the property and share your feedback on the types of amenities you’d like to see in the new park. Click HERE to view the Public Meeting Flyer
Otay Regional Trail Alignment Study: The goal of this multi-agency project is to create a coordinated and sustainable trail system that will provide quality recreational trail connections while balancing the need to protect sensitive environmental resources. The trails and potential staging areas under consideration for further environmental analysis, as approved by the study partners are illustrated in this map. Environmental studies and analysis are currently underway for this project. For more information contact Melanie Tylke.
County Parks held a second public workshop on June 20 for a new trail plan in Otay Ranch and adjacent areas. Please see the workshop presentation and project fact sheet for additional information.

Tijuana River Valley Regional Park: In December 2016, County Parks hosted a public meeting at the Tijuana River Valley Regional Park ranger station. The purpose was to discuss the results of a feasibility that could bring new amenities to the valley, pending available funding, including campgrounds, a community garden extension, enhanced multi-use trails, a bike park and new equestrian areas, among other ideas. Projects will be discussed in further detail once funding sources have been identified and secured. Here is a recap of key points. For more information, contact Melanie Tylke.
