Major improvements have been made to the San Ysidro park as part of the mayor's push to develop every neighborhood in San Diego.
Mayor Kevin Faulconer will be joined Wednesday by Councilmember David Alvarez and community members to celebrate the completion of a nearly $1.7 million improvement project at Larsen Athletic Field.
The enhancements were funded by a $1 million federal grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Faulconer also introduced major lighting improvements to the San Ysidro park in 2015.
Some improvements at the park include play equipment, drought-tolerant landscaping, picnic tables and benches, as well as additional parking and travel path upgrades to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
