Mayor Kevin Faulconer, District Five Councilmember Mark Kersey, and other city officials recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park in Torrey Highlands, officially opening the park to the public. “A once overgrown and underutilized plot of land has been transformed into the spacious, family-friendly park this community deserves,” said Councilman Kersey. “The Torrey Meadows Neighborhood Park is a welcomed addition to the neighborhood, with open space and features that people of all ages can enjoy.”

The 5.3-acre park includes two children’s play areas, shade structures, picnic tables, a half-basketball court, restrooms, drought-tolerant landscaping, and a parking lot. The project broke ground in October 2016, and is the 13th park to open since Mayor Faulconer pledged to break ground or improve 50 parks over five years. It is located at 13499 Torrey Meadows Dr. and serves residents in Torrey Highlands, Black Mountain Ranch, and Rancho Peñasquitos.
