CHULA VISTA, Calif -- Monday is the last public meeting for residents to give input at a Design Workshop about the proposed Bayfront Park and Sweetwater Park projects.
"You will never get all of the opinions or get it all right, but yeah I think they have put forth a lot of effort," said Chris Ross of the meetings that have been held throughout the last year, in addition to online surveys.
Even at Monday’s final design meeting, there was still space allowed for suggestions through comment cards.
The Port of San Diego and the City of Chula Vista released renderings ahead of the meeting to FOX 5 of the planned projects.
Harbor Park will nearly double the size of the existing Bayside Park. It will include a new boat launch, cafe, waterside terraces, and a pier. Children will also be able to enjoy a play area and interactive fountain.
Sweetwater Park is planned for the northern portion of the Chula Vista Bayfront. It will feature meadows and gardens, nature playgrounds, a picnic area, bicycle paths, and sand dunes.
Most of Sweetwater Park will be paid for by a grant by the California Natural Resources Agency, which is funding $4.8 million of the estimated $5.63 million project.
Sweetwater Park and Harbor Park are scheduled to open in 2023.
