    The Hilton Head Park Expansion Project opens the first water playground in El Cajon.

    Vice Chairwoman Dianne Jacob, local leaders and residents will gather Monday afternoon for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate phase two of the Hilton Head Park Project.

    The park has expanded to include a ship-themed water playground with four interactive exercise stations, two covered pavilions, walking paths and new restrooms. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin on Monday, Oct. 27 at 3:30 p.m. at 16005 Hilton Head Road in El Cajon. After the ceremony, kids can be the first to play in the new water playground.

    The project cost a total of around $1.6 million, funded mainly by a $1.2 million grant from Proposition 40, which helps communities develop and improve parks.
