Montgomery-Waller Recreation Center
History of the Center
On August 28, 1883 John Montgomery became the first person to achieve a controlled flight when he launched his glider aircraft from a hillside in Otay Mesa. In 1950, a silver, 90 foot wing from a World War II Consolidated B-24 Liberator bomber was dedicated to this site, and in 1964 the family of Luckie Waller donated a parcel of land next to the site for a park named after her son.
