San Diegans now have a new place to play – with a waterfront view, to boot. Reef Indy went to check out this new park and found the experience both enjoyable and exciting!

Family time at the new Waterfront Park at the Embarcadero, San Diego.
The new Waterfront Park spans twelve acres, eight of which used to be parking lots north and south of the Administration Center.

The space boasts large, open grassy areas, a playground, shaded sitting areas, gardens and an expansive interactive fountain. Being in Embarcadero, the park also has an unforgettable waterfront view that can only be seen in San Diego.

This park opened in May, and the water used is recirculated, treated to public swimming pool standards. On most days, the park is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. About 1,500 to 2,000 people per day use the park, according to a San Diego County spokesman.

The park utilizes approximately 88,000 gallons of water and this has raised some recent controversy. The question was asked with this is the best use of resources given the area’s drought conditions.

Doesn't this look super fun!

Oma feels that the loss of water due to evaporation and general use is minor compared to the benefits received by the citizens.

What do you think?
