Alga Norte Community Park in Carlsbad
A new park, Alga Norte Community, is well under construction in South Carlsbad at the intersection of Poinsettia and Alicante in the heart of La Costa Greens and near Bressi Ranch.
Alga Norte Community Park has been under development and discussion for many years prior to approval but as the photos show, it is moving along rather well - this is clearly a multi-year project.
I show property in this area of La Costa regularly (the homes on the hills are in SolTerra, a small village of 38 homes in La Costa Greens)and it's been fun to watch the groundbreaking and the park beginning to form.
Carlsbad's Alga Norte Community Park is ambitious, with a wide array of services and facilities to address the needs of residents in this densely populated area near the coast.
The 32-acre Alga Norte Community Park facilities are impressive, and extensive:
- a Dog Park (with separate areas for large and small dogs)
- softball/baseball fields
- several basketball half courts
- picnic areas
- batting cages
- an Aquatic Center (with instruction pool, competition pool, warm water therapy pools and locker rooms)
- Skate Park (15,000 with elements and challenges for beginners as well as those who are more skilled).
We have a ways to go before this will be completed. While the ground has been cleared and prepared, (the photo above was taken last summer) right at the moment it is a field of flowers and weeds. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
