The Ash STreet garage roof is now the base for the construction on the park lands and fountain above at the street level. Eight acres on the waterfront will stay no man's land until park work ends. San DIegans might want to plan ahead while construction continues.
Off lot parking serves as the first option for many visitors. Those members of the public who do not choose a green space in the Ash Street garage officials park while at a meeting or a hearing can park at one of the metered spaces on the streets around the Pacific Highway county headquarters. Blocks on North Harbor Drive along the bay and Pacific Highway keep parkers at a short distance from the county building.
Parking inconveniences will last until new parking opens to the public on Kettner Boulevard. Grass and trees will grow on both the south and north lots.
Pn the good side, San DIegans can look forward to a garden filled historical landmark park across the street from the San Diego Bay. Grounds for civic and social gatherings will replace the black asphalt lots that long stayed open for public parking.
Any local who needs to find a space can park at the commercial lot off Broadway. The lot stays a waterfront fixture. Future plans for a hotel and park do not for now, change a local's money's worth gotten in return for paying to park.
