The County recently purchased 98 acres of land off of South Grade Road for a park. The land features a mix of open space, mature shade trees and both natural and disturbed habitats, making it an ideal location for wildlife preservation and recreation.
Potential environmental constraints on the property are still being analyzed and park features will be selected after public input meetings. Alpine Park will be designed to meet the recreational needs of residents of all ages and interests.
The first public meeting took place Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at the Alpine Community Center. If you missed it, here's a look at the park location, and here are recreational options that were shared with attendees: Play Board, Trails Board, Fields Board, Event Spaces Board, Gathering Places Board and Additional Opportunities Board.
An online survey has been posted for those who could not attend the first meeting. Tell us what you think! Please take our survey. All feedback will be taken into consideration as this project moves forward.
Future public meetings will be advertised via mail, online at sdparks.org, and through the County’s social media outlets.
Design and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) analysis are currently underway and will take approximately 1 year. Once complete, DPR will obtain required permits and can begin construction once full funding is secured. To date, $6.5M has been secured for this project. Total project cost will be determined once design is complete.
