Richard T. Steed Memorial Park/Baron Von Willard Dog Park Master Plan Update

The existing park is located along the eastern boundary of the City, and with the Rancho San Clemente Specific Plan (Open Space (OS) area. The project site is proximate to the Pacific Golf Club, the entire community of Talega, San Onofre State Beach Park and light industrial /office properties. The park is close to the U.S. Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton, which is located .5 miles to the east.

The existing park site consists of approximately 44 acres, including undeveloped park property of approximately 13 acres. The current park was developed in six phases encompassing approximately 31 acres, and included lighted softball fields, batting cages, food concession and related facilities, a skateboard park with concession building, sand volleyball courts and a children’s play area, restroom buildings, a parking lot and a private easement and several SDGE utility easements.

The original IS/MND discussed a variety of environmental topical issues, including hydrology and water quality, air quality, noise, and soils and geology. Information that is still relevant that can be utilized from the prior certified IS/MND will be used by the UltraSystems project team.

Proposed changes to the park as part of the Master Plan Update would include additional parking, an expanded skateboard park, restroom facilities, pump track facilities, volleyball courts, pickleball courts, an active meadow/multipurpose field, scenic overlook and trellis, outdoor flex classroom/event space, foul ball netting surrounding baseball fields, baseball score board, and stair connection to future parking lot.
