Creekside Park in Civita Wins “Project of the Year” Honors in the Parks Category From the San Diego/Imperial County American Public Works Association (APWA)

Creekside Park in Civita was named Project of the Year in the Parks Category in yesterday’s annual San Diego/Imperial County APWA (American Public Works Association) Awards presentation. The 1.3-acre linear park extends from Friars Road to Civita Boulevard and is adjacent to the 14.3-acre Civita Park. Creekside Park includes elevated walkways spanning a cobble swale below, a children’s play area, seating, picnic areas and an off-leash dog run.

Creekside Park also features landscaped detention basins that mimic the character of a natural creek. These basins are part of the community’s extensive biofiltration system, which treats and cleans runoff before it flows into the San Diego River.

Sudberry Properties developed Creekside Park in partnership with the city of San Diego’s Parks and Recreation Department. The park was designed by Schmidt Design Group, Inc. of San Diego, with Glen Schmidt, FASLA, principal in charge, Jennifer Montgomery, associate landscape architect, and Jesus Alan Figueroa, project manager.  RICK provided civil engineering services and Hazard Construction was the general contractor.

Creekside Park is an integral part of the growing network of parks in Civita, a testament to the community’s green, livable future. This network, stretching from Friars Road in Mission Valley to Phyllis Place in Serra Mesa, is more than 80 percent complete
