What's New at the Park?
San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside
We are excited to announce the beginning of a new project: the San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside. Our goal is to take the 1908 Bostonia House that we own and repurpose it as a science education center where local students can come and learn science in a real-world setting.
This will be a major undertaking for the Conservancy so please help by donating today.

For several years, we have sounded like Paul Revere saying, "The trail is coming! The new trail segment is coming!" There is good news: the trail has navigated all of the permitting hurdles. The plans and specs are approved and the excavation is complete.
We are now beginning the work of planting in the graded areas and trail borders with native plants and oak trees. We welcome the community to help with the re-vegetation by joining one of our with many work parties. If you, your family, group or club would like to help please let us know.
We are uncertain how long the construction of the trail extension will take, but we will keep you updated in our monthly e-Newsletters and invite you to the grand opening.
Arundo Control Project
Lakeside's River Park Conservancy, in partnership with the San Diego River Conservancy, is beginning a project to control arundo donax (giant weed) in the San Diego River water-shed. We are applying for grants to remove arundo from private property in the watershed at no cost the property owner.
