Additional Rec Facilities Coming to Carlsbad


One of our recent goals has been to add additional outdoor recreational facilities to Carlsbad. The projects are a relatively low cost way of adding some amenities. We have also been very blessed to have a number of local businesses- such as Clint Cone with Sendero, Anthony Foreman with AR Foreman Construction, the BLM, Steven McCutcheon, NWP, Mosaic and others – provide support for the construction of our outdoor services.  Last year, we were especially proud of the pickleball and volleyball courts that were added to the Carlsbad Beach area. 

There’s a lot left to do- and two of our upcoming projects will involve adding more recreational facilities around the beach area. The Lake Carlsbad Recreational Area is one of the gems of Carlsbad – and we want to take advantage of this beautiful park space. First, we’re going to be putting in a basketball court near the volleyball courts. The basketball courts that were added to Smith Park a few years ago are extremely popular, so we know that some additional courts will be well used. We’re also going to install permanent cornhole boards at the beach area near the basketball courts. We also have plans to add another set of public restrooms to this area. 

Additionally, we’re planning to add two half-soccer fields at the northern end of the park, to the west side near the end of Riverside Drive.  We are working out the details for these fields, but we know they will be put to good use as well. We’ve had many members of the community contact us and ask about adding additional recreational fields for adults in particular.
