Vernal pools, Pasatiempo open space in Del Cerro

Posted by George J Janczyn on January 23, 2010

The recent rains have awakened the vernal pools at the Pasatiempo open space in Del Cerro. A portion of the space was paved with asphalt and is occasionally used as a staging area for utility undergrounding projects underway in the neighborhood. Once the projects are completed, the asphalt lot could be removed, but there is some interest in keeping it as a staging area for firefighting in the event of a wildfire. I believe some people would like the lot to keep vehicles off the street while visitors enjoy the space and take in the views. The future of this city-owned property is uncertain.
