Saving Nature in the Heart of Urban San Diego

A look at the San Diego River Park project:

Lakeside's River Park

When most people think of the River Park, they think of a community amenity, an asset, something to make things a little nicer. They do not think of the economics of this project and what it has provided to this community. For this project, we have raised over $16 million.

Ten million dollars went to purchase the land from Vulcan Materials. The remaining money went to the San Diego River restoration and trail development.
