 A long-awaited $1.7 million park improvement project was officially unveiled Saturday in the Tierrasanta community.

Mayor Todd Gloria and Councilmember Raul Campillo were on hand for the reopening of Villa Monserate Neighborhood Park, which was first built in 1975.

The park improvements feature two new playground structures, new picnic tables and seating areas, a picnic shelter and improvements to the landscaping and irrigation.

The Villa Monserate Neighborhood Park is on Robusto Road and the improvement project took roughly one year to complete.

“The residents of Tierrasanta came together and told the city what kind of improvements they wanted in Villa Monserate Park, and the city delivered,” Gloria said.

“This new and improved tot lot for the community of Tierrasanta was sorely needed,” Campillo said.
