Washington Park Skate Spot Update

In February 2021, the City released a Request for Proposals for the construction of the Washington Park Skate Spot. The project bid award was made by the City Council on April 21 and construction started on June 7, 2021. When completed, the 7000-sf skate spot will offer multiple features including a quarter pipe, pump bump, grind edge, banked hip with rail, and a 5-sided pyramid. The project is expected to take approximately three months, stay tuned for updates. More information about this project can be found here.

Drought-Related Water Conservation

Last week, the State of CA expanded the emergency drought declaration and called for Californians to voluntarily reduce water use by 15%. Though facing hot and dry conditions, the San Diego region is thankfully drought-safe this summer due to planning and investments in new water supplies and storage.

The City of Escondido thanks and encourages our customers to continue to use water wisely. Use everyday conservation tactics like taking shorter showers and reducing sprinkler run times; as well as long-term conservation measures such as replacing lawns with drought-resistant plants. For conservation tips, device rebates, and other water-efficiency ideas, visit watersmartsd.org/ or escondido.org/water-conservation-1 .
