The County recently purchased 9.3 acres of land off of Calavo Drive, north of Jamacha Boulevard, for a future park. The land features relatively flat open space, disturbed habitats, is close to multi-family housing and schools, making it an ideal location for future recreational amenities.
Potential environmental constraints on the property are being analyzed and park features will be selected after public input meetings. Calavo Park will be designed to meet the recreational needs of Spring Valley residents of all ages and interests.
The first public meeting took place Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at the Spring Valley 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, 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. Please take our survey! Online survey will end October 31, 2019, all feedback will be taken into consideration as this project moves forward.
Design and environmental analysis per the California Environmental Quality Act are currently underway and will take approximately 1 year. Once design and environmental analysis are complete, the County will seek construction funding. To date, $7.4M has been secured for this project, which includes funding for land acquisition, design and environmental analysis. Total project cost will be determined once design is complete.
