Colina Park is located just east of Teralta East. The neighborhood?s single-family residential areas have been encroached upon by large lower income apartment complexes. It is distinguished by hilly terrain, giving the area outstanding views. A large community park?Colina Del Sol Park?includes Colina Park Golf Course, a recently rejuvenated par 3 course that features a very successful Pro Kids Golf Academy for local youth.

One of City Heights? older neighborhoods, Colina Park?s history is linked to changes in the dominant transportation systems over the years. The community opened to development in the early 1900?s by a streetcar line terminating at its southwestern edge; the Euclid Avenue & University Avenue intersection at that time marked the end of the University Avenue streetcar line.

The northern boundary, El Cajon Boulevard, was the original east-west highway prior to the construction of Interstate 8 in the late 1950s, and was a major commercial draw.
