The Lakeside Equestrian Park, to be located on a 13.88-acre site at the northeast corner of Moreno Avenue and Willow Road in the community of Lakeside, will host a variety of equestrian and livestock related activities such as practices, training, and contests, including shows, and non-equestrian events such as wedding receptions and dog shows.
A typical equestrian event would likely draw between 50 and 125 attendees, with large events attracting as many as 300 (spectators and participants). The large events are anticipated to take place a few times each year.
Community members, equestrians and visitors will enjoy many amenities including a covered arena, an open arena, a maintenance building, concession building, restroom building and 3,200 square-foot banquet hall, a public day-use staging area with a 24-foot x 24-foot shade pavilion with picnic tables with parking and ADA access, livestock corrals, and many other site improvements. See conceptual rendering.
Visitors will access the facility from two driveways: A main entrance on north end on Moreno Avenue near the open arena and the day-use trail staging area on the south end of Moreno Avenue. During large events, the day-use area will be closed and the interior gate opened for overflow parking.
Additional detail on the project amenities can be found in the project narrative.
County Parks will contract with a third-party lessee/operator for managing daily operations and maintaining the equestrian park. One supervising park ranger will be available and there will be one point of contact from the County who will act as a liaison between the County and the property lessee/operator.
The park will likely be open from sunrise to sunset, and until 10 p.m. for large events.
