Posted by: Coronado Arts 3 months ago

The Recreation and Golf Services Department is proud to present the 2019 Summer brochure. Inside you will find many exciting and enriching opportunities the City of Coronado offers. With the rainy season behind us, it is once again time to venture outdoors and participate in your favorite programs and activities or try something new. The City is in the process of procuring and installing beach mats that will allow those with mobility challenges to access various beach locations and amenities. The mats will be installed at three locations - Central beach, allowing access from the Lifeguard Tower to the hard pack sand by the shore and two locations at North Beach, one providing access to the beach fire rings and the other to Dog Beach. The Golf Course restaurant has undergone an extensive remodel. The new concessionaire, Feast and Fareway, are proud to welcome you to their new restaurant venue that has been enhanced to include a new indoor/outdoor retreat space, dinner space, fantastic patio seating, and a completely new menu. I hope you will take the opportunity to stop by, take in the breathtaking views, and join them for something to eat and drink. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your recreational activities and don’t forget to “Put Some Play in Your Day."

Art Outside the Box - Phase II Complete!
Posted by: Coronado Arts 4 months, 2 weeks ago

The City of Coronado recently completed Phase 2 of “Art Outside the Box” wrapping six Caltrans signal boxes on the Silver Strand Route 75 with graphic art film. The six boxes are located adjacent to the six traffic signals between the Naval Amphibious Base western border and the entrance to the Coronado Cays. The boxes are wrapped in images of flora and fauna indigenous to the Strand, taken by local photographers Brian Lippe, Daron Case and Jody Esquer. The box at the entrance to the Cays features a silhouette of Lippe with his camera, a regular sight during his many years as a resident of the Cays, taken by his friend and fellow-photographer Daron Case. Brian lost a courageous battle against cancer last year, but during his treatment he often ventured out and captured the beauty of the Strand with his camera. He donated his photography for use in this project.
