Parks & Recreation
The City partners with multiple school and community college districts to provide joint use facilities for recreational purposes.
The City and San Diego Unified School District have been cooperating in the joint use of numerous recreational facilities since 1948. A list of the available joint use facilities including location, size, and amenities is available:
It is one of the largest joint use programs in the country and continues to grow with the ongoing implementation of the Play All Day Program, which plans to add over 45 new joint-use recreational facilities. The joint use program allows for the shared use of public facilities and resources. The program fills an essential gap in addressing the City’s need for more parkland and additional recreational opportunities in our communities, particularly in the older urbanized communities where there is little available land for new parks. The Program also advances the San Diego Unified School District’s goal to develop quality schools in every neighborhood that provide resources and support the needs of the communities that they serve.
Play All Day Program Resources:
Access the San Diego Unified School District Public Portal which contains information on all major improvements planned at San Diego Unified schools. To find information on the implementation schedule for a future joint use field at a specific site, select the school name, and look in the graphic schedule for a project titled “Joint Use Field”.
Joint Use Agreements are the written agreements between the City and a school district setting forth the terms and conditions for sharing the use of recreational facilities. The City and San Diego Unified School District are in the process of updating all of the Joint Use Agreements.
The City has joint use agreements for the shared use of recreational facilities with six other school districts and one community college district.
