The Alpine Community Parks & Recreation Sub-Committee would like to let the community know of a new park to be built in Alpine, “Albertsons Park.” A meeting is set, but we need to spread the word. The park needs community support! Please ATTEND!
On February 8th at 6pm at the Community Center the Alpine Planning Group Parks and Recreation subgroup along with the City of San Diego is holding a meeting regarding a proposed park behind Albertsons. The issue at this point is that there has been a complete lack of any sort of support from residents in favor of a new park at all. Albertson’s has donated the land, Back Country Land Trust agreed to maintain it. The city agreed to build it. But the city won’t build it if Alpine residents don’t want a park. And so far the city has seen no interest from residents. Part of this problem is that no one knows about it. We need people to show up at the meeting to say YES we would like this vacant lot that is full of weeds and brush turned into a park. From there we can influence design. If enough people do not show up in support of a park, the issue will be dead. Please go to the meeting. Show your support of a park. Please let anyone else you think might be in support of any kind of park know about it. The current design has a tot play structure, an older child play structure, covered seating, and a path around the entire park with fitness stations. The actual end design is not set in stone. Some courts would be great, don’t you thnk?
