    Carlsbad Parks Assessment Meeting

    Please make time to attend one of the meetings below. Ask the city to build a pump/jump track, bike park and more gravity flow trails. Thanks!




    From the City website:

    If you could design the city park of the future, what would it look like? Would it be large and centrally located, or smaller and tucked away in your neighborhood? Would it have playgrounds, ball fields and a climbing wall, or would it invite more passive outdoor activities? What about the city’s future recreation programs? What classes would be offered and where? City residents are invited to weigh in on these questions and more at two upcoming public meetings that are part of a planning process designed to create a comprehensive parks and recreation action plan for the future.

    Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 6 to 7:30 p.m.
    Carlsbad Senior Center
    799 Pine Ave.

    Wednesday, Feb. 20, 6 to 7:30 p.m.
    City of Carlsbad Faraday Center
    1635 Faraday Ave.

    Have little ones at home? Bring potty-trained kids ages 3 and older along to enjoy fun activities and supervised play onsite, led by trained and certified Parks & Recreation staff during the meeting.

    “The Carlsbad community has always valued healthy outdoor lifestyles and strong social connections, and that’s what our parks and recreation services are all about,” said Mick Calarco, special projects manager for the city. “It’s important to hear from residents as we plan for the future to ensure we continue to meet their needs and expectations.”

    The Parks & Recreation Department is developing an updated plan for future parks and recreation services to ensure resources are aligned with current and future trends, community values and the city’s changing demographics. In addition to public meetings, the city will collect input online and through mailed surveys, interviews and focus groups with the public.

    “The needs assessment and resulting comprehensive plan will help us to develop a mix of parks, facilities, programs and services that addresses the needs of our community and enriches the lives of our residents today and for years to come,” said Calarco.

    The assessment and action plan are expected to be complete this fall.

    Thank you to all who showed up. The moderator/consultant went around the room at the end of the meeting and asked each attendee for the one thing Carlsbad should build. The top three were.

    Community Gardens - 14
    Pickle Ball - 12 is a cross between ping pong and tennis. active older adults love it apparently.
    Bike Parks - 7

    No other idea had multiple requests. This is great for the bike group. The city knew they were going to get many votes for pickle ball and gardens before they started the process. Bike options are now on the map.

    If you are unsure of being part of these meetings, its easy. All you have to do is come out to tonights meeting and say bike park when its your turn to vote.
