Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

La Jolla Parks & Recreation, Inc. is challenged to promote, and provide facilities for the citizens of San Diego and engage in civic, social, educational, cultural, special events, philanthropic work or activities in a building and on a property dedicated in 1915. The structure requires maintenance and upkeep that city budgeting does not always address. The design of the playground and juxtaposition of playing fields and play structures do not follow best practices.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Safety and security of children and adults can be enhanced and recreational opportunities expanded though new design and implementation of technological improvements. The installation of a wi-fi system would give community organizations convenient access during meetings held at the center; it would permit installation of safety features, and provide passive recreation for physically challenged participants. The opportunity to connect to the web and to specific websites for music, education and civic purposes would be an enhancement currently out of the reach of many citizens. The repair and relocation of basketball courts and the installation of age-integrated playground equipment would allow parents, program directors and care-givers appropriate areas for play and fitness activities.

A Vision Committee meets monthly to fine-tune a plan and create blueprints for a redesign. Blueprints will go to the City. The City will complete analysis of the plans, it may require changes, and it will request proposals for building ( RFP). The Vision Committee resches out to neighbors and other community organizations and institutions to apprise them of the plans, to seek input and advice. A website for information and donations is established. Board members will be investigating options for grants. We look for business and community partnerships to make the transformation a reality.

We have excellent relationships with repeat donors. Three members of our Board have seen large-scale public park projects into fruition.Our dedicated board is vitalized by the participation of parents and experts on its Vision committee. Turnover is very small. Community response to the ideas and plans for improvements has been positive. We can avail ourselves of free, expert advice from architects, attorneysWe look​and contractors due to the high regard of La Jolla Parks & Recreation,Inc- 501c3. Located in the center of a tourist destination and with over 100 years of providing recreation to visitors and citizens, we can draw upon a large number of potential donors.

Expanded feedback from website. Increased participation in Recreational programs. Higher giving from individuals. Greater number of donations from individuals. Support and endorsements from other organizations (Rotary, Kiwanis. La Jolla Holiday Festival & parade , La Jolla Town Council,La Jolla Community Planning Association, Newcomers Club, Senior Citizens Organizations)

We have added programs and added various sports to the Rec Center activities. We are continuing discussions on the budget with City staff. We are entering into a new stand alone partnership with the City of San Diego. Our Vision Committee is actively seeking input on the project and meets monthly or bi monthly as needed. We confer with Park & Recreation Department of the City of San Diego.
