e are happy to bring you our Spring 2013 Recreation Guide brochure. Inside you will find a wide variety of specialty camps, sports, including our popular surf programs and basketball leagues, as well as hundreds of classes and activities. You’re sure to find something of interest to you and your family. Also, be sure to attend our Spring Egg Hunt on March 30. The City of Encinitas Parks and Recreation Department has also been thrilled to break ground in late summer/early fall on a couple of major projects, including the 44 acre Encinitas Community Park and renovations and improvements at Moonlight Beach (see the inside back cover for details). I hope that you’ll get out and enjoy your parks, beaches and trails, and I hope to see you in one of our recreation programs or at an event. As we like to say at Encinitas Parks and Rec, “Be a Part of It!” Always feel free to connect with us; our staff is here to help you find just the right program or activity for you.

A new and improved Moonlight Beach is

coming this MaY! The Moonlight State Beach Improvement Project began Sept 4th, and crews have been working hard ever since to give Moonlight Beach a whole new look. The concession stand and restrooms have been removed, and a combined 3,600 square foot restroom/concession building is taking shape, and will be tucked into the existing slope below the parking area. Additionally, a brand new 950 square-foot lifeguard storage garage is being built near the existing lifeguard tower. The top of the garage will serve as a public overlook area. Shuffling the facilities around will result in more recreational space and add a paved ADA accessible walkway around the iconic palm tree on the beach. Also the fire pits will be relocated and ADA accessible. A lot of thought and design has gone into the design of the facilities and aesthetics. A big goal of the project is to have a natural fit and feel in the cove and to look great! We hope you enjoy the new facilities at Moonlight Beach.
