  The San Diego River Park - Lakeside Conservancy had a groundbreaking ceremony on February 25, 2003.  The site of the event was the Hansen Aggregate property on Channel Road, (formerly Nelson Sloan) right next to the river.  You may not know that Hansen has donated 25 acres of land for the River Park.
  World famous artist, James Hubbell, has designed a sculpture that will be built on the Channel Road property.  It depicts a great Heron, with wings spread and head bowed down toward a pond of fish.  Large rocks and boulders will be a part of the art feature.  Eventually this property will be the site of a Visitor and Nature Center for all of Lakeside to enjoy.
  Meanwhile a County Trails system is being developed for the River Park.  Lakeside residents were asked to contribute ideas and needs for the trails.  Our riders and hikers had a lot of great thoughts that were sent directly to the persons in charge of designing trails.
  Coming on May 3rd, the San Diego River Park - Lakeside Conservancy will be hosting a grand opening of sorts.  "The Beginning of the River Park" event is being planned and the whole community is invited to join in and celebrate the beginning of Lakeside's River Park.  Mark your calendars so you won't forget.
  If you have questions about the River Park plans, or if you would like to offer your assistance as a volunteer, just call the Conservancy office at (619) 443-4770.
