Children's Park in San Diego reopens! This park has been completely redesigned

9 million dollars were invested and this park now has a new playground area, picnic tables, dog areas, and many more things

San Diegan families will have a new place to share and do outdoor activities in a fun way for free.

Mayor Todd Gloria and member of the San Diego City Council Stephen Whitburn, alongside community leaders and city staff, cut the ceremonial ribbon to officially reopen Children's Park in San Diego after redesigning it and carrying out the appropriate improvements.

“With the redevelopment and reopening of Children’s Park, we have transformed a previously underused space into a truly vibrant place for the community,” Mayor Todd Gloria said. "Downtown residents and visitors now have an extraordinary park to gather, relax, picnic, play and exercise. Part of our greater vision to make San Diego a city that works for all of us," he added.

The $9 million dollar project will help to transform Downtown San Diego and it is aligned with the goals of the Community Downtown Plan that boosts the development of outdoor opportunities for residents, workers, and visitors.

The renovation of this park includes a new playground for children, picnic tables, exercise equipment, a dog area, public restrooms, a grassy area, and a building for sellers.

“This park, in the heart of Downtown, is a testament to what we can achieve when we come together as a community to improve the quality of life for all residents,” said Councilmember Stephen Whitburn. “This moment marks a significant milestone in our city’s journey toward creating vibrant, inclusive spaces for families and children.”

Artist Miki Iwasaki, who lives in San Diego, also created public artwork for the park. This piece called "Petrichor" is an abstract sculpture that seems to float above ground like a cloud and it will be the park's lighthouse. It was requested by the city of San Diego through Arts & Culture.
