Collier Park Improvement Project Phase 1

Project Overview

Collier Park Phase I Improvements will be the first project implementing the Collier Park Master Plan.  Collier Park is La Mesa’s oldest park.  The project will focus on the Park entry from Palm Avenue to the second picnic area off of Pasadena Avenue. A new park entry sign will be installed consistent with the City’s signage program and the sign will be enhanced with decorative hardscape and a seat wall.  A new sidewalk will also be built to better connect pedestrians from the street and bring them in to the park.  Decorative LED lights will be added along the sidewalk.  Eight new parking spaces will be added along Pasadena Avenue, where none currently exist, to better service this heavily used area of the park. The grade of the area will be raised slightly to improve its visibility and accessibility.  Six California Sycamore and one Jacaranda tree will be planted.  The picnic areas and drinking fountain will also be upgraded.  The electric service will be brought up to current codes and security enhancements will be made to the restroom.
