The Chula Vista Bayfront project represents one of the last truly significant large-scale waterfront development opportunities in Southern California. At approximately 535 acres, the project seeks to transform a largely vacant and underutilized industrial landscape into a thriving recreational, residential and resort destination on the Chula Vista waterfront. When complete, the public will enjoy more than 200 acres of parks and open space, a shoreline promenade, walking trails, RV camping, shopping, dining and more. While providing long-awaited, enhanced shoreline recreation and an active, commercial harbor in the South Bay, the Chula Vista Bayfront project will also establish ecological buffers to protect wildlife habitat, species and other coastal resources.
Chula Vista Bayfront Parks Outreach
Harbor Park and Sweetwater Park
Combined, the future Harbor and Sweetwater Parks will account for more than half of the new park space planned for the Chula Vista Bayfront project. The Port and the City of Chula Vista are committed to an inclusive and open outreach process through which community members can share their vision for these important park spaces and continue to help shape the future of the Chula Vista Bayfront.
While each park will be unique, they will be inherently connected and offer the community a full spectrum of ways to engage with the waterfront in complementary spaces.
- Harbor Park will provide signature amenities, recreational opportunities and programming in its much larger available acreage.
- Sweetwater Park will connect visitors with the bayfront’s ecology and provide environmental educational opportunities and family/child-oriented recreational exploration.
The public is invited to participate in a series of community outreach meetings in which the Port and the City hope to learn how to best balance the recreational wants and needs of the community that will create a welcoming, warm environment for visitors with equally important efforts to preserve Chula Vista’s natural resources and improve and protect waterfront access for future generations.
