In July 2019 hundreds of residents attended a Port of San Diego public outreach meeting at the Coronado Community Center with a unified message against a proposal in the ‘Discussion Draft’ of the Port Master Plan Update (PMPU). Their primary grievance was the allocation of up to 350 new hotel rooms near the Coronado Ferry Landing. The community voices, along with those of Coronado’s elected officials, were heard loud and clear by Port staff, and the advocacy was effective.

Grand Caribe Shoreline Park in the Cays is a well loved park by both residents and visitors. With access to the bay, visitors sometimes make a day of it and bring the family, others just launch their paddle boards from its shore, while some walk their dogs and enjoy the plants and birds. Bunnies that scurry around in the evenings can be enjoyed as they munch on the grass. The grassy area with a bronze sculpture called “Sheltering Wings” has become a place to stop to take family photos.

The park offers something for everyone. So it was a disappointment to many when it first closed after the lockdown. Although it reopened for a while, it was closed again due to its overuse.

Prioritizing public health, and in alignment with COVID-19 State and County public health orders, Grand Caribe Shoreline Park will be closed starting Thursday, August 6, 2020 until further notice. In partnership with the City of Coronado, the Port reopened the park in May. However, due to heavier than normal use, enforcement of the State and County’s health orders, which requires measures to ensure park visitors are social distancing from others, has become a challenge. Therefore, the park will be closed until gatherings are allowed without restrictions.

Closed signs will be posted at the park, and the Coronado Police Department will be assisting the Port with enforcement of the park closure.
