A master plan is being developed for a total transformation of the 9.5 acre Ortega Park. A committee is investigating the feasibility of installing a skateboard park, artificial turf fields, a new ball field, a fence, security lighting, new restrooms, picnic facilities, and on site parking. In addition, the plan will evaluate development of a new, year-round swimming pool, a splash playground, and a shared pool/community building.
