Document Description
The La Mesa Waite Park Project (Project) involves the redevelopment of a disturbed 2.84-acre site into a park for the surrounding community. The proposed neighborhood park would encompass the entirety of the 2.84-acre site and would include amenities such as a nature-themed playground, a tot lot playground area, a dog run with a decomposed granite surface, a large lawn area, a fitness zone, a shade structure with picnic tables, and a half-court basketball court. The park would also provide a restroom building with two family-style units, an accessible outdoor sink and water station, as well as a garage and storage for maintenance tools on the back side of the structure. The Project would provide thirteen parking spaces, including two ADA-accessible parking spaces, located within a designated parking lot in the southeastern portion of the site. An elevated wooden ramp would be located along the eastern edge of the site, providing an entrance to the park for visitors accessing the site from Murray Hill Road. Concrete stairs would also be provided as a more direct connection to the site from Murray Hill Road. Bicycle racks would be provided adjacent to the proposed parking lot to promote a variety of transportation methods to and from the park.
