Lakeside's River Park Conservancy's (LRPC) mission is to preserve and restore the biological integrity and beauty of the San Diego River while integrating recreational, educational, and cultural opportunities for our region. We are part of a larger effort to establish the 52 mile San Diego River Park, from Julian to Ocean Beach. LRPC is sphere of influence encompasses 14 miles of river, from the base of El Capitan Dam to the Santee border. Established in 2001, we have purchased 118 acres along the San Diego River. We have restored 180 acres with the goals of habitat restoration, flood control, water quality and trails and recreation development. A significant portion of our work involves invasive plant control in the San Diego River watershed in Lakeside.
We are about to embark on a new and exciting portion of our mission. Soon we will receive a donation of 19 acres along the San Diego River for the development of a new park, the first new park development in 10 years along the river. We will be working closely with the Lakeside community and with the greater San Diego River community. With this land, we have the opportunity to be as creative as possible in developing a new cutting edge, state of the art park facility.
