Park Revitalization Talking Points

  • In City Heights we now have about 500 new residents due to the new housing developments. About half of the 500 residents are youth aged 18 and younger. Henwood Park is the closest green and closest family space available to them.   

  • Construction of another 117 new housing units will be built in City heights within the next few years, some to break ground this year, bringing a greater need to provide green spaces for families to enjoy throughout the year.  

  • Our team has identified key stakeholders to ensure that our project is completed in a timely manner that honors our community. So, we are confident that the design process will go well and we will have Conceptual Design in the next few months. As a result, we are asking for funding to continue moving the project forward.  

  • This park is the heart of City Heights. It draws thousands of visitors to numerous events, tournaments, and daily visits.  For example, according to SD Parks Foundation the Parks After Dark event alone brought 3,950 people in July and 3,825 people in August to Henwood Park. A total of 7,775 people.  

  • The park is located in zip code 92105. According to the Office of Child & Youth Success Master Plan, 5% of all of San Diego’s children and youth live in this zip code. Is the second highest concentration of youth and children in San Diego. We need a GOOD PARK.
