San Diego County Board of Supervisors votes to advance Spring Valley park plan



The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-0 Wednesday to advance plans for a new park in the community of Spring Valley.

Supervisors authorized the purchasing and contracting department to find a contractor to build Calavo Park in a residential community that features multi-family housing located near three elementary schools -- Casa De Oro, Highland and Loma -- and Monte Vista High School.

Budgeted at $8.9 million, the 9-acre park will feature an all-wheel area, community garden, dog area, pickleball court, restroom and perimeter fencing.

Board Chairman Nathan Fletcher said he's excited that the park will be built for residents in Spring Valley, which is located in his district.

"This part of my district historically has been underserved when it comes to recreational space," Fletcher said. "It will provide paths for walkers and runners, a dog park, picnic areas, playgrounds and a multi-use field."
