Far Left: The off-leash dog run was one of the top requests for the City Heights community. Tubular steel decorative fencing segregates the dog area. Aluminum DOGIPOT Waste Stations were specified. The boulders double as seating and dog climbers. Middle: The large prefabricated trellis (ICON Shelter Systems) in the picnic area is situated adjacent to the rehabilitated Auburn Creek, part of the Chollas Creek waterway. The interpretive panels (Envirosigns) explain the restoration of Auburn Creek, the removal of invasive plants and the installation of native riparian species to help restore the creek's wildlife habitat. QR codes on the panels encourage visitors to further explore educational materials. Amenities include park benches, ADA BBQ grills, round tables, picnic tables, game tables and trash receptacles. Right: The play equipment (Landscape Structures) includes climbing elements, slides, music play, swings, and spinners surrounded by a series of seating nodes.
