A Dose Of Nature Comes To One Of San Diego’s Densest Neighborhoods

Are you looking for something to do with your kids? Or just wanna have a change of scenery? Check out San Diego’s newly constructed Canyon Trails and experience the nature near the city. Perfect for outdoor learning opportunities for everyone.

San Diego County is known for its natural attractions and hiking excursions. Now for residents of one San Diego neighborhood, those environmental experiences are in their backyard.

San Diego Canyonlands Executive Director Eric Bowlby said a goal of the more than $1 million project, which launched in 2005, was to bring open spaces to a region that is lacking green areas. A 2013 report showed City Heights was among 15 community planning areas that did not provide enough parks for its population.

“We saw an opportunity to transform degraded, sometimes dangerous open spaces into havens for wildlife and a community asset where people can hike and enjoy nature,” Bowlby said.

Getting Young People To Our Desert National Parks


Appreciate the beauty of nature! Get a day off and visit desert national parks. Introduce your family especially the young ones to these spectacular places because the younger they get to know the parks, the more they’ll recognize their value. Watch a variety of birds, go backpacking trip, and see beautiful paintings.

During the hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service, it’s good to reflect on those who had the foresight to preserve our air, land, water, wildlife, and historic and cultural sites for future generations.  And the first birthday of our newly created desert national monuments underscores the importance of protecting land for people and wildlife.

Which makes it especially important to get outside with those future generations and introduce them to these special places.
