The city bought the 43 acres south of Santa Fe Drive and west of Interstate 5 in 2001 for $17.2 million from one of the city's first flower growers, Robert Hall. The land is commonly called the Hall property.
In ensuing years, the city designed a $35 million park with baseball and softball fields, basketball courts, a teen center, a skate park, a dog park, playgrounds, rest areas and a swimming pool.
If built, it would be the city's largest public park. The first phase, to be financed with proceeds from a $20 million bond issue last year, would include the dog park, restrooms, grassy areas and a possible skate park.
