Mission Hills/Pioneer Park is Ready for Picnics and Parties

Mission Hills/Pioneer Park is ready for lots of picnics and celebrations.

After a major fundraising campaign lead by the Mission Hills Town Council (MHTC) with collaboration of the Mission Hills Foundation (MHFD) as the fiscal agent of the funds raised, Mission Hills/Pioneer Park is ready for lots of picnics and celebrations.

In the original construction phase, playground equipment was installed, as well as ground cover and landscaping. During this recent phase, a new patio and two large picnic tables, which are wheelchair accessible, were added to the site.

The latest project also included replacing broken walkways, refurbishing three existing concrete picnic tables and benches to look like new, and adding two trash cans to the park.

The Mission Hills community is extremely grateful to Lori Orr, resident of Mission Hills who was lead volunteer coordinator for this project and worked with the MHFD for the fundraising efforts, and with the MHTC for construction of the project.  Mission Hills’ resident, Pam Magnus, an architect also volunteered her time to help Lori.

Orr and Magnus worked closely with Charlie Daniels, San Diego Park Department project supervisor, and Jesse Laguna, the construction supervisor for Nature’s Elements Landscaping on Phase two of the project.  Nature’s Elements Landscaping was contracted for the playground project and construction work. Orr spoke highly of Laguna and Nature’s Elements Landscaping who really worked with the community to meet their goals and demonstrated great attention to all details of the project.

Warren Shafer and Sharon Gehl, Mission Hills’ residents and current trustees with the MHTC, have also helped on the second phase of the project. They also thank and recognize all the donors who contributed to this effort, including the County of San Diego, and residents and businesses in Mission Hills.
