Carlsbad is Adding a New Community Park

Carlsbad is Going to Have a New Community Park

 

TGIF Concert in the Park in CarlsbadCarlsbad is blessed to have a number of community parks for residents to enjoy. Some parks offer a lot of amenities, such at the Alga Norte Community Park in the La Costa area, while others are smaller and rather simple.

 

Regardless of size, what’s fortunate for us is that the City of Carlsbad has set aside these community parks, and maintains them, for residents and visitors to enjoy year-round, with a host of amenities that vary from park to park, and multiple events (such as the annual Carlsbad Brewfest, EGGStravaganza, Snores and S’Mores, multiple swim events at the Alga Norte Aquatics Center, and the popular TGIF Concerts in the Parks in the summer).

 

In case you aren’t aware of all of Carlsbad’s parks, here’s an interactive map of the community parks in Carlsbad.

 

Carlsbad is going to be adding another community park to the list in the near future, and residents have an opportunity to share their thoughts about this new park, keeping in mind our community’s values, needs and priorities.

 

Veterans Memorial Park, on 90+ acres (of which a little less than half, per the City website, is protected land that cannot be developed) will be located at Faraday and Cannon Road, just east of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon and Discovery Center. A hiking trail already exists in this beautiful hilly area adjacent to a residential area, with wonderful views.

 

Here's a virtual tour of the area

 

 

Residents are encouraged to participate in the online survey to share their thoughts as the master plan is being developed – the City expects about a 2-year process to complete the plan.

 

Veterans Memorial Park is expected to be completed in about 5 years. Here’s a link to some important information about the process and issues regarding this new park.

 

The public survey is available through March 23 and can be accessed here (note – the survey is NOT on the City of Carlsbad website but an external site).

 

If interested, you can also sign up for email updates from the City of Carlsbad on the Veterans Memorial Park project, and others.
