New joint-use park space opening next month at North Park's Jefferson Elementary

SAN DIEGO -- A joint-use agreement between the San Diego City Council and the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is bringing a recreation space to Jefferson Elementary School in North Park.

Both the City and the School District approved the $1.9 million park space, located south of University Avenue at 3770 Utah St. Work on the park was completed last month.

Cynthia Reed-Porter, communications supervisor at SDUSD, said the project came out of necessity because Jefferson Elementary was lacking in sufficient play space for its students. Reed-Porter also said the joint-use field was developed on SDUSD property and is predominantly funded by the School District’s Proposition S bond program, which provides funds for improvement projects at school facilities throughout the district.
