City officials and community members Wednesday helped break ground on a five-acre park that will serve relatively new neighborhoods in the northern part of the city west of Rancho Penasquitos.
The $7.9 million Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park will include a multi- purpose turf field, children’s play area, basketball court, picnic facilities, shade structures and a restroom.
“This project has been long awaited and will be a great addition to the Rancho Penasquitos, Black Mountain Ranch and Torrey Highlands communities, providing a much-needed space for children and adults to enjoy,” said Councilman Mark Kersey, who represents the area.
Grading of the lot began in August. According to Kersey’s office, the project is expected to be open for public use by next summer.
