Lake Elsinore is getting a brand new 18-acre park, and the city is inviting the community to come celebrate the facility’s groundbreaking ceremony Aug. 17 at 9 a.m.
Canyon Hills Community Park located at 34360 Canyon Hills Road will feature two baseball fields, two dual-purpose fields for soccer and football, a lighted basketball court, a dog park with separate areas for large and small pooches, two children’s play areas with shade canopies, and several shaded picnic areas.
The park will also feature the city’s first interactive water play area to include a 4,300-square-foot water-spray playground.
“We’re thrilled to see this park project come to fruition and are especially proud of the design, which will include the City of Lake Elsinore’s first interactive water play area,” said Pat Kilroy, director of Lake, Parks & Recreation for the city of Lake Elsinore.
The facility will also feature an amphitheater, a concession building with kitchen, restrooms, and a recreation storage area.
Designed by Landscape Development, Inc., the park is part of the master-planned community of Canyon Hills. Pardee Homes, the developer of Canyon Hills, is serving as the park’s general contractor.
Several elected dignitaries, public safety officials, and business leaders are expected to attend Wednesday’s groundbreaking ceremony.
The park, which is owned and operated by the city, is expected to open next summer, and will serve all Lake Elsinore residents.
