At 10a.m. on Thursday, July 19, San Diego City Councilmember Scott Sherman and County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar will break ground on a nearly 5,000-square-foot ranger station at Mission Trails Regional Park (MTRP). This $6 million investment will give rangers improved resources and facilities to better protect the park and engage with park visitors.
In addition, renderings of public artwork by acclaimed local artist Roman de Salvo will be on view. The artwork consists of a large boulder with trail-like channels carved into its surface. A functioning drinking fountain fixture rises out of the highest point of the boulder. Water flows through the array of tiny trails in serpentine paths down the slopes of the boulder inspired by the many trails found at MTRP.
The event is open to the public and will take place at the East Fortuna Staging Area: 14450 Equestrian Circle, San Diego, CA, 92071
