San Vicente Reservoir Re-Opens to the Public

San Vicente Reservoir Marina Re-Opens

After an eight-year closure, the San Vicente Reservoir has re-opened to the public.

The reservoir first opened to the public in 1947 but was closed since 2008 while the San Diego County Water Authority and the City of San Diego increased the reservoir’s capacity and made significant improvements to the site. Some of the new features in the upgraded marina and recreational area include an expanded boat ramp, docks accessible for people with disabilities, picnic areas and a new first-aid station.

“This is an exciting day for anglers, water sport enthusiasts, boaters and San Diego families,” said Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer. “This new marina and recreational area will help a new generation enjoy all the reservoir has to offer. But it is important to remember that this reservoir is about more than recreation – it is a critical source for our region’s water supply.”

The marina re-opened on Sept. 21. For more information on San Vicente, including hours of operation and ticketing information for entry, visit the San Vicente Reservoir web page.
