San Elijo Hills Community
Anchoring the Northwest corner of the Town Square is the
San Elijo Hills Community Park. This well equipped, 19-acre
park hosts both family and community wide events. The park
has two ball fields and a soccer field, all fully lighted
for night-time games. Neighbors get together at the picnic
areas near the tot lots, plus there’s a cool spray-ground
for warm-weather fun.
One of the park's focal points is the 6,500 sq. ft. community
center, which is home to a daycare facility and meeting
rooms, operated by the City of San Marcos. A unique outdoor
classroom provides the perfect space for special activities.
The park also serves as the main trailhead for the comprehensive
18-mile network of hiking trails.
San Elijo Hills Development Company completed construction at the 250-acre Double Peak Regional Park located on the highest peak in coastal North County.

It includes a 150-seat outdoor amphitheatre for interpretive ranger talks, a group picnic canopy, picnic tables, an adventure play area, rest rooms, a ranger station/residence, and plenty of public parking. Soon to come will be an Equestrian Staging Area at the eastern edge of the community. Hiking trails within the park are open and connect into an 18 mile network of trails throughout San Elijo Hills and into San Marcos.
Bring your pooch to play off-leash at the bark park, located
