Parks and Recreation

  • I supported the new Caballo Park and will continue to support developing the park as new funding becomes available. In fact, I was heavily involved with the construction of the climbing wall through the Escondido Sunrise Rotary Club.
  • I’d like to see more pocket skate/bike parks for our youth. These would be smaller spaces open to all but with no need to support with staff or supervision. Under my leadership, we’ve committed to build a skate spot at Washington Park.
  • I will continue to look for additional opportunities to keep our youth engaged.
  • I support maintenance upgrades to our existing parks as resources become more available.
  • I support our Public Library and the vision of building a new Library in an expanded Grape Day Park. I look forward to the next phases of planning and community engagement to bring this to fruition.
  • I also support using the savings from outsourcing our Library staff to further develop the vision and expansion of our Library.
