A groundbreaking ceremony held Wednesday morning celebrated the construction of the San Diego State University Mission Valley River Park.
As part of the SDSU Mission Valley development project, River Park will serve as a green space for the public near the upcoming Snapdragon Stadium. The 34-acre public park boasts biking trails, natural playgrounds, an amphitheater hill and more. A trolley stop will also be implemented near River Park so San Diegans can have a convenient way to get there.
River Park marks the first phase of the residential housing that will be built on the property, which will later be joined by the construction of commercial stores and laboratories for SDSU.
The groundbreaking comes shortly after SDSU’s football team visited the construction site of their new stadium for the first time.
