Reata Park and Event Center Nears Completion

Anyone who has driven Ortega Highway on the eastern side of San Juan Capistrano will have seen the progress at the City’s newest park: Reata Park and Event Center.  According to the San Juan City Manager’s weekly update:

The park is currently in the final stages of construction. Miscellaneous items for the week include the installation of bollards and minor concrete work/repairs at various areas throughout the park. Installation of irrigation, planting, corral fencing, post rail fencing, gates and other structures continues.

It looks very impressive!  All those involved with the design and execution of this park should be commended, in particularly all of those who volunteered time and labor or contributed money to make this park a reality.
