Mayor Kevin Faulconer and City Councilmember Mark Kersey welcomed residents to a new $8 million neighborhood park after a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday.
Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park is part of Faulconer’s pledge to break ground or improve 50 parks in five years.
The 5.3-acre neighborhood park is the 13th park and community area to open since Faulconer’s pledge in 2016, according to the city of San Diego.
The $8 million project includes a basketball court, two children’s play areas, drought-tolerant landscaping, restrooms, shade structures and a parking lot.
Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park will serve the Torrey Highlands, Black Mountain Ranch and Rancho Peñasquitos neighborhoods.
More than a dozen other park projects are currently in various stages of construction.
