Saratoga Park Playground and Adult Fitness Area
Ocean Beach would like to join many of the other San Diego beach communities that have a children's play area adjacent to the ocean. It would be wonderful for the children and parents that live in OB as well as the thousands of people that visit the beach.
At an OB Town Council meeting, Ocean Beach lifeguards and firefighters suggested constructing an adult fitness area in Saratoga Park - a location these first responders often work out at without any equipment. The Town Council notified the OBCDC (the group in Ocean Beach that primarily handles capital improvement projects) and the OBCDC decided to make this project a top priority in combination with a children's play area that has been part of the community plan for some years.
Currently, OBCDC is working on site survey, design and permitting costs of the children's play area and adult fitness area on the site of Saratoga Park. The OBCDC has awarded the RFP to LdG Landscape Architects located in Point Loma to work on a preliminary design based off a public workshop held in 2014.
This project has the support of all OB community groups - OB Mainstreet Association, OB Town Council, OB Planning Board, and the OB Community Foundation.
It's the belief of the OBCDC that this children's play area and adult fitness equipment will greatly enhance the quality of life for Ocean Beach residents and tourists alike.
