City To Hold Buena Vista Park Workshop

by The Editors on June 4, 2018

The City of Carlsbad is holding a workshop on Thursday, June 7, from 6 – 8 p.m. at Buena Vista Elementary School to find out what neighbors would like to see in a new park being planned at the site of the former Buena Vista Reservoir. And as we all know, the one thing every new park in Carlsbad should always have is some kind of skateboarding facility. Nothing big, just a nice little corner with some shapes to skate that won’t bother anyone and this is your chance to let the City of Carlsbad know that some skate able terrain would be perfect for this location (especially seeing as the reservoir was home to many historic moments in skateboarding.)

Here are the details.

Community Workshop
Thursday, June 7
6 to 8 p.m.
Buena Vista Elementary School,
1330 Buena Vista Way

The new park is made possible through a set of agreements approved by the Carlsbad City Council in March 2017. The agreements will also ensure the completion of the missing link of Poinsettia Lane, the creation of new trails and the addition of protected habitat in Carlsbad.
