Mission Trails Regional Park is something rare and special — an open space preserve of more than 8,000 acres, a home to thousands of native plant and animal species and a beloved destination for outdoor recreation.

We at the Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation are committed to restoring, preserving, improving, and expanding the park for future generations.

Did you know that Mission Trails Regional Park is one of the largest urban parks in the nation? It’s true. And while we’re working hard to maintain trails, restore habitat, provide educational programming to thousands of San Diego County school children, and stewarding park outreach activities, there is much, much more to do!

We can’t accomplish all of this without the help of our community, generous donors like you, who are willing to lend a hand and help us raise the funds necessary to preserve the precious resource that is Mission Trails, a treasured open space teeming with native plants and wildlife.
