NEW PARK OPENS IN SPRING VALLEY WITH COMMUNITY GARDEN, PLAY AREA, EXERCISE EQUIPMENT AND MORE
On Friday, May 13th, the grand opening of the Ildica County Park located at 8604 Ildica St. in Spring Valley took place. The new park is about half an acre and includes a play area, exercise equipment and a 20-plot community garden.
The grand opening included a gardening demo, a walkthrough of the park with the park ranger, and a ribbon cutting. The presentation was kicked off by Brian Albright, Director of County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation, Nora Vargas, Vice Chair of the County Board of Supervisors, and Nathan Fletcher, Chair of the County Board of Supervisors.
“One thing we’ve seen over the last few years is the importance of our local and regional parks,” Fletcher said. “We want to create more opportunities for San Diegans to spend time outside, to stand in the sun and breathe in fresh ar. There is an immediate physical reaction, but nature also helps us to focus and find peace.”
