- Fall in La Mesa: Top 5 Things to Do
Unleash Your Creativity with Clay and Paint!
Check out La Mesa’s local ceramic studios Mud Lily, CeramiCafe and Get Centered Clay Studio for classes that offer a unique hands-on experience in making and decorating your very own works of art.
Come out to Collier Park tennis courts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to play Pickleball. While the game is easy for beginners to learn, pickleball can become a fast-paced and challenging game that’s both entertaining and a fun way to stay active. Participants must bring their own equipment.

Take the Urban Walking Trails
Created thanks to a grant from the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, the Urban Trails are a great way to get fit and experience La Mesa’s sights. Follow routes marked by three different colors that determine trail difficulty.
- Blue - Beginner “The Stroll”
- Green - Intermediate “The Stride”
- Red - Advanced “The Challenge”

The McKinney House Museum is open for tours on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month from 1-4pm. The research archives are open every Saturday (except holidays) from 1-4 pm.
Additionally, if you have a passion for history, the La Mesa Historical Society is looking for volunteers interested in being docents/guides for the Museum and the archives. There will be a volunteer training opportunity on September 22, 10:30 a.m.-noon.
