About the Project

De Anza Project AreaThe De Anza Revitalization Plan project is a three-year comprehensive outreach and planning program to reimagine, repurpose and revitalize the project area. This planning effort will work with the community and stakeholders to develop conceptual revitalization plan alternatives that result in a preferred plan, an amendment to the Mission Bay Park Master Plan, and an environmental impact report (EIR).

The Mission Bay Park Master Plan identifies the De Anza area as a flexible planning area in which a number of potential uses, both public and private, can be accommodated under varying intensities and configurations. The goal of the De Anza Revitalization Plan will be to create a regional amenity that is an iconic landmark destination with a diverse mix of recreational uses that serve the region.

Project Goals

  • Create an iconic recreation destination that maximizes the benefit offered to the region by this extraordinary waterfront amenity.
  • Provide the highest and best use of the project area to serve the needs of a broad range of local and regional users.
  • Identify a mix of uses that will provide sustainable revenue generating leaseholds for the City.

To meet these goals the City will engage the community and technical and design experts to determine the potential reuse of the project area to revitalize De Anza and surrounding areas and include a diverse mix of public recreation, camping, wetlands, and other active regional park uses.

How does the Plan relate to the Mission Bay Park Master Plan?

The project site falls within the boundaries of the adopted Mission Bay Park Master Plan – a regional park that serves all of the residents of San Diego as well as visitors.  The Revitalization Plan is subject to Park goals and objectives in the Mission Bay Park Master Plan.  The final plan shall be the basis of the amendment to the Park Master Plan. 

The Mission Bay Park Master Plan currently provides for the following land use recommendations for the DeAnza Project Area:    

  • Regional recreation needs, including Guest Housing (camping facilities and recreational vehicles) and beach access.
  • Wetlands to contribute to the Park’s water quality. 
  • Hydrologic improvements to safeguard the viability of marsh areas.
  • Trail, viewing areas, and other recreational features to enhance public use of the study area.
  • Leaseholds that support the Mission Bay recreation use.

How does the Plan relate to the ReWild Mission Bay?

The De Anza Revitalization Plan project is an effort lead by the City of San Diego to revitalize the project area to provide for the highest and best use of the area to serve the local and regional needs of the public. The ReWild project is being conducted by the San Diego Audubon Society to restore wetlands along Pacific Beach Drive and both sides of Rose Creek. Please visit the ReWild project site at rewildmissionbay.org for more information.
