Otay Valley Regional Park (OVRP) is a multi-jurisdictional planning effort by the County of San Diego and the cities of San Diego and Chula Vista. In 1990, the jurisdictions entered into a Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement for coordinated planning, acquisition, and design for OVRP. The agreement established a three-member Policy Committee of elected officials and a 21-member Citizens Advisory Committee. A calendar of the commiittees' meetings is found at the bottom of this page.

The planning area for Otay Valley Regional Park is located four miles north of the International Border. The regional park will extend about 11 miles inland from the southeastern edge of the salt ponds at the mouth of the river, through the Otay River Valley, to the land surrounding both Lower and Upper Otay Lakes Reservoir.

The 200-acre Otay Valley Regional Park represents one of the major open space areas within southern San Diego County, linking South Bay with lower Otay Lake Reservoir. From playing fields and picnic areas to hiking, biking, and horse trails, the park will provide local residents and visitors with a variety of recreational opportunities. At the same time, efforts are in play to protect open space, wildlife, historic, agricultural, and archaeological resources.

Currently, the park offers passive recreational areas including trails, extending from the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge to I-805 and a Ranger Station located at 2155 Beyer Boulevard.  Active recreational areas are offered at the County-operated facility at Otay Lakes. However, there are plans for future multi-use areas and the continuation of the trail system within the park's boundaries. Off-road vehicular activity within the OVRP Park boundary is strictly prohibited by law.

Features:

  • 8.3 miles of non-motorized, multi-use trails
  • 7 staging areas
  • 7 ponds
  • Birdwatching
