Camino Ruiz Neighborhood Park

Park Summary

Perched on the edge of Peñasquitos Canyon this park site was once planned to be part of a bridge over the canyon that would have extended Camino Ruiz to Rancho Peñasquitos. Known as Horsehead Park during the planning process, the resulting park came from a cauldron of animosity and heated emotions.
