There is a lot going on at the Mira Mesa Gil Johnson Community Park & Recreation Center. The new spring program is beginning, and it features events for your toddlers to teens to enjoy. Classes from Creative Arts to First Steps in Tap / Ballet are available, as well as preparing your toddlers for kindergarten in the Totally Toddler Tiny Tots classes. There is even a children’s self defense class for your 5-16 year olds, and sports from basketball to baseball at the Mira Mesa Recreation Center.
Probably the most asked question from our residents involves the various parks with Gazebos throughout Mira Mesa. Many wonder how they can reserve the Gazebos for their children’s birthday parties, and if they need a permit for an inflatable jumper. For park permits, reservations for sports field use, picnic areas, special events, gazebo reservations and all other questions, contact the Mira Mesa Recreation Center at (858) 538-8122. For Lopez Ridge reservations, contact Maria Hershman at (858) 538-8171.
