Port of San Diego Invites Public to Provide Input for Future Expansion of Pepper Park on National City Bayfront


As part of the Port of San Diego’s public outreach efforts for the National City Marina District Balanced Land Use Plan, the public is invited to provide input for the future expansion of Pepper Park.

The Port is holding a virtual Community Workshop, Thursday, May 6 from 6-8 p.m. as part of its latest design effort aimed at establishing a grand vision for Pepper Park. Members of the community will have the opportunity to share feedback on potential features they’d like to see at the park and consider recreation opportunities that will help transform Pepper Park into a resource that both residents and visitors will cherish for years to come.

The virtual meeting will be conducted via Zoom and will explore design elements for both the existing park and the 2.5-acre future expansion, which could result in additional opportunities for larger and more frequent organized community arts and culture events. The event will be offered in Spanish and Tagalog in addition to English.
