Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Park Feasibility Study

The County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is conducting a feasibility study to determine an optimal location for the County’s first off-highway vehicle (OHV) park.

San Diego County has a high concentration of OHVs. According to registration data, the number of OHV vehicles grows every year. High demand, combined with a limited number of legal OHV facilities, has led to an increase of unauthorized OHV use in open space areas. 

As a park agency, DPR is working to enhance opportunities in parks - exploring new amenities and designs that can accomodate diverse types of recreation, to continue to provide all residents with safe and accessible places to play. These efforts are balanced by work to preserve land and local habitats.

Project Background: 

On Feb. 10, 2021, the County Board of Supervisors authorized DPR to apply for approval from CA State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division to seek grant funding for a project to identify potential sites for an OHV park. With Board support, CA State Parks approval, and grant funding secured, project managers are working with a consultant to identify potential sites in San Diego’s unincorporated areas, while simultaneously conducting public outreach and collecting feedback.
