The city of Carlsbad seeks residents’ input on the development of Robertson Ranch Park through in-person and online workshops Aug. 8 and 9.

The park, which will be located on about 11 acres near the corner of El Camino Real and Cannon Road, is in the early planning stages, according to the city.

An in-person workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the park site. Parking will be available at Fire Station 3, located at 3465 Trailblazer Way. Since the park site is not developed, city officials request that participants wear comfortable shoes.

A live online workshop will be held Wednesday, Aug. 9, 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the Zoom virtual meeting platform. Online registration is required.

The city is also planning an online survey for those residents who cannot make the workshops.

The park’s development is part of the city’s five-year strategic plan to address quality-of-life issues.

“The City of Carlsbad’s General Plan requires the city to have 3 acres of park land for every 1,000 residents,” the city states on its website for the park. “That’s why when new housing developments are approved, developers often must pay fees for the future construction of parks. In 2006, the Carlsbad City Council approved the development master plan for Robertson Ranch. The neighborhood features a mixture of single-family and multifamily housing, along with open spaces and trails.

The city set aside 11.2 acres for the park as part of the master plan.

More information about the park and master plan is available by contacting Planning Manager Nick Stupin at 442-339-2527 or nick.stupin[at]carlsbadca.gov. Residents can also sign up for email updates regarding the park’s development.
