THE San Diego County Department of Parks and Recreation opened Four Gee County Park to an eager crowd of close to 200 people on Saturday, May 11 in 4S Ranch.

County Supervisor Joel Anderson led the celebration and reminded all that “Nothing brings a community together like a park.”

The event featured fun activities for families and their pets. Dogs made full use of their portion of the park. Laughter echoed from the playground, chess tables, cornhole and ping-pong tables. Park staff educated and entertained with a “Discovery Table” and a live owl.

The park, located at 16964 Four Gee Road, measures over 1 acre and offers a variety of amenities for people of all ages and varying interests to enjoy.

Families with kids can enjoy a large, shaded play structure with nearby lawn area. There are also picnic tables, a grill, bike racks, walking paths and a restroom.

Dog owners can take advantage of the fenced, off-leash dog areas and agility course features, along with a drinking fountain that accommodates both dogs and their owners.

Sustainability is at the core of the county’s mission. All plants are drought-tolerant and watered by smart irrigation systems to support sustainability measures. Many of the trees and shrubs are native to the area, to complement existing vegetation and encourage wildlife.

The park will be open daily from sunrise to sunset, and both patrolled and maintained by County Parks and Recreation staff who are stationed at nearby 4S Ranch Sports Park.

Four Gee County Park now helps to enhance the quality of life for both people and pets in San Diego by providing exceptional parks and recreation experiences and by preserving significant natural resources. The total project cost is estimated at $1.9 million.
