Carlsbad officials seek residents’ input on a design for the city’s newest park with an eye toward a unique concept that incorporates social connections, sports and quiet spaces.

Feedback on three options for Robertson Ranch Park can be sent to the city now through Feb. 23 in three ways:

✔ A “walk through three parks” community meeting
set for Saturday, Feb. 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
at the Faraday Administration Center,
1635 Faraday Ave.

✔ A virtual community meeting on the Zoom platform on
Thursday, Feb. 15, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

✔ A “choose your own adventure” setup at the Faraday Administration Center where residents can walk through three information stations, each focused on one of the park concepts, and talk to park planners.

Residents can also provide feedback through an online survey.

Robertson Ranch Park is planned for the corner of Cannon Road and El Camino Real. The final design, based on three options with community input from last fall, will be presented to the City Council for approval later this year, according to a city news release.

“Many community members asked the city to consider adding a second entrance and exit from the park,” city officials noted in the news release. “The three design concepts show options for accessing the park from Cannon Road, although the city is still confirming the feasibility and cost of making this change.”

The city will create a Robertson Ranch Park master plan, which will then be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission for review and the City Council for approval. Once a design is approved, the City Council will then determine funding, a formal park design and a construction timeline.
