Coronado Cays Park is the City’s largest park and home to highly used joint-use sports fields. The irrigation system for the park is old, inefficient and wastes a lot of water. It needs to be replaced. This work will disrupt the entire park. The City Council agreed in July to retain a landscape architect to help assess the park, hold multiple public meetings and create designs for possible improvements based on public input.

The first two public workshops are set for Oct. 16, 6 p.m. at the Coronado Community Center, 1845 Strand Way, and Oct. 19, 10 a.m. at the Grand Caribe Room, 505 Grand Caribe Causeway.

There is some misinformation being widely disseminated and the City has placed some information on the Fact or Fiction page on the City’s website to clarify that there are no pre-determined plans other than the need to replace the irrigation system. The City wants to keep the focus on ways to improve the park without putting forth any specific plans.
