Landscaping improvements by the Port of San Diego are underway at Tidelands Park. The park improvements are taking place within the turning circle, parking islands, and park entrance to Tidelands Park. The existing plants are approximately 25 years old and dying due to irrigation system failures. The landscaping renovations include the removal and replacement of existing landscaping and the removal of old irrigation and the installation of a new drip irrigation system to manage the proposed landscaping improvements.
