Mission Valley’s largest public park is more than halfway to completion, with opening set for 2017.
The 14-acre Civita Park will include a large central plaza with rose gardens, an outdoor amphitheater with grass seating, a game area, a dog park, two basketball half courts and a community garden.
The multi-level park, which cascades down a former quarry site, will eventually include separate play areas for toddlers and youngsters, a tree-shaded picnic grove and interpretive gardens crisscrossed with trails, scenic lookouts and restrooms.
Once the park is constructed, it will be turned over to the San Diego Park & Recreation department for management.
The new park is part of the Civita community, a 230-acre urban village that will ultimately have 4,780 homes and apartments, approximately 480,000 square feet for a lifestyle retail center and 420,000 square feet for an office/business campus.
