Large Dog Park at San Elijo Hills Park Undergoing Renovations

The large dog park at San Elijo Hills Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road, will be closed until approximately August 26 for turf repairs. The closure will allow the City to provide a better environment for pooches to play by installing new sod to repair a large portion of the park’s turf, which has deteriorated and exposed dirt and rocks. The new sod must be irrigated several times per day for approximately three weeks in order to establish roots and grow strong enough to handle foot (and paw) traffic.

We appreciate your patience during the repairs and hope that you will enjoy one of San Marcos’ additional dog parks, including Hollandia Park, Montiel Park, and Sunset Park.

San Elijo Park Splash Pad will turn on for the Summer

unnamed
Beginning Friday, June 17, the City of San Marcos will be turning on public splash pads to offer residents and visitors a place to enjoy water recreation during the hottest summer months.

Moving forward, splash pad hours will be from 10 am to 6 pm from Memorial Day weekend through September 30.

Located at Sunset Park, San Elijo Park, Buelow Park, Mulberry Park and Discovery Lake Park, splash pads are hand-activated water features within the playground that run for a limited time with little to no standing water to create a safe, water recreation destination.

“Thanks to continued water saving efforts this past year both in San Marcos and regionally, we are pleased to announce that one of our most popular summer attractions is returning,” said City Manager Jack Griffin.

In addition to splash pads, the City of San Marcos is home to two public pools – Woodland Park Aquatic Facility and Cerro De Las Posas Aquatic Facility – and boasts a comprehensive aquatic program featuring open recreation swim, family swim nights, swim assessments and ability-based swim lessons.

The city continues water conservation efforts with reduced irrigation schedules, converting conventional sprinkler spray heads with high efficiency sprinkler heads, installing drip irrigation, using native and/or drought tolerant plants in new or rehabilitated public space landscaping, retrofitting city buildings with low-flow water fixtures, and conducting landscape irrigation audits.

For more information about city water saving efforts, visit www.san-marcos.net/savingh2o.

Eucalyptus Trees: San Elijo Hills “City” Park

A cluster of “volunteer” Eucalyptus trees will be removed on Friday, May 6th, in the San Elijo Hills Park between the lower and upper softball fields.

The trees are located in an easement for the San Diego County Water Authority, and currently sit on top of two pipelines. In addition to limiting access to the pipes, the trees are beginning to arc creating a health and safety issue.
