San Diego Adobe Falls Open Space Park slide show

Posted by George J Janczyn on July 8, 2010

A year ago I published a story called Alvarado Creek and the future of Adobe Falls. It’s a description of San Diego’s Alvarado Creek which runs from the Grossmont area to the west parallel to Interstate 8 until its confluence with the San Diego River in Mission Valley. The creek has been mostly straitjacketed into concrete channels and tunnels, but still runs freely through a bit of untamed land where it tumbles down a series of rocky cascading falls in Del Cerro, just north of San Diego State University. A small portion of the land surrounding the falls is owned by the City of San Diego and is designated Adobe Falls Open Space Park (the rest is owned by SDSU), but the space is not maintained for public use and is rather difficult and hazardous to access.

A few months ago I went back and took a series of additional photographs in order to supplement the story. I thought I’d share them here in case you missed the story. Click on the picture below to see them in a slide show. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

    Great photos! I’ve never been there even though I’ve lived in downtown area since 2003. Hope the place is preserved for the public. A hidden (if rather vandalized) gem indeed. :o)
