Concrete sidewalk will no longer count as the only open play area west around the block and north at City Heights Square. Wednesday, March 13th, was the groundbreaking day for construction on the mini-park that was part of the deal the city councilmembers agreed on to build the villages of homes and businesses on University Avenue in City Heights.
Action will no longer get delayed on the plan to add park space to the north of downtown urban community. One park at a time, the greens filled with trees are getting added to the blocks.
This new open space will get used by residents at the square and the senior housing just up the street who will walk through one of three gates to sit at a bench or get together with neighbors at a picnic table. Even play a game at one of the game tables.
An overhead trellis, and a steel arch, will make space nicer on the senses.
Councilwoman Marti Emerald and Mayor Bob Filner went to the City Heights block in the morning for the groundbreaking.
