Solana Ranch Park Grand Opening, March 27, 2015

The new Solana Ranch Park will hold a grand opening ceremony on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 1:30 pm. Join Council President Lightner in this ribbon cutting ceremony at this great new park. Of course, after visiting the new park, you can run across the street to the new PHR Village center to enjoy a Starbucks coffee and shop at the Trader Joe's (which also opens on Friday, March 27!) It'll be a banner day for the Pacific Highlands Ranch community.

Solana Ranch Park is nestled between Gonzales Canyon and the Solana Ranch Elementary School in the community of Pacific Highlands Ranch. The design for Solana Ranch Park creates a destination for the residents of Pacific Highlands Ranch and embraces the walkable nature of the community. A turf amphitheater offers a flexible space for community events, a half basketball court and children’s play area provide opportunities for play, and interpretive panels tell a story of the park’s connection to nature, the surrounding community and the region’s history.

NOTE: The Solana Ranch Park is located next to the new Solana Ranch Elementary School, 13605 Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway San Diego, CA 92130.

CCA Theater presents "Museum"

Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) Envision Theatre is thrilled to present  the comedy play "Museum"  by Tina Howe, November 7, 8, 13, 14 & 15, 2014 at the CCA Proscenium Theatre. Guest Directed by Jason Maddy with Technical Direction by Jeremy Sewell and Costumes by Janet Pitcher. Museum is about the final day of a group show of three fictional contemporary American artists being exhibited in a major museum of modern art. In the course of the day some forty people, played by 27 talented young actors, come to view the work of these "groundbreaking" Modern Artists. This fast paced comical journey is filled with art lovers, socialites, skeptics, foreigners, students, lost souls, fellow artists and of course, museum guards, and follows their interaction and struggle between Art and Ego. Filled with colorful characters you could find throughout everyday life, this final day promises to be a miraculous event. The show will be at the Canyon Crest Academy Proscenium Theatre, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, 92130, with 7:00 PM performances on November 7 & 8, and on November 13, 14 & 15.
