Supervisor Fletcher’s District to Get New 9-Acre Park; Board Approves Construction Contracting Cost



A new park is going to be built in Spring Valley. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors today authorized staff to proceed with identifying a contractor to build Calavo Park in a dense residential community with multifamily housing near schools.

“We live in a community with great year-round weather and I am excited for us to build another great outdoor, neighborhood-based nine-acre park for the residents to enjoy,” said Supervisor Fletcher. “This part of my district historically has been underserved when it comes to recreational space; this new park will provide paths for walkers and runners, a dog park, picnic areas, playgrounds, and a multi-use field.”

Other items the community requested and will be included at Calavo Park includes an all-wheel area, a community garden, pickleball court, restroom and perimeter fencing. A volunteer park host site, where a volunteer can live on the property and be available after hours, will also be included in the design and construction. On April 10, 2019, Supervisor Fletcher and the Board members at that time approved the purchase of the project to later transform it into a park.  

The estimated cost for the design and build of Calavo Park is $8.9 million.
