Equity Forward: Chollas Creek Watershed Regional Park Master Plan

Projected Completion: 2024

Chollas Creek watershed

The Chollas Creek Watershed has unparalleled historical, biological and cultural resources, traversing from La Mesa and Lemon Grove into the neighborhoods of City Heights, Eastern Area, Encanto, Southeastern San Diego and Barrio Logan. Identified as an implementation action within the Parks Master Plan adopted by City Council in 2021, the Chollas Creek Watershed Regional Park Master Plan will provide an opportunity to bring diverse neighborhoods together through a watershed-wide system of trails and parks where people can gather, play, interact and enjoy nature. The Chollas Creek Watershed Regional Park Master Plan will deliver on the broader vision of more opportunities for outdoor recreation as well as preservation of natural qualities and habitat within this area. The specific park vision will be shaped by public input.
