City Heights Skatepark

Location San Diego California
Organization Mid-City Community Advocacy Network, Human Impact Partners

Mid-City Community Advocacy Network and its Youth Council worked with Human Impact Partners to conduct an HIA to examine health and equity implications of a skatepark proposal in City Heights, a neighborhood in San Diego. Obesity rates in City Heights are higher than those in San Diego County overall, and the neighborhood has an inadequate supply of parks, open space, and recreational opportunities for youth. The California Endowment funded the HIA through the Building Healthy Communities program. program.

Outcome

The skatepark was constructed in 2016 in the residential heart of City Heights, and a second, larger skatepark opened in the neighborhood’s Park de la Cruz in January 2018.
