In partnership with the City of Lemon Grove and the Sage Project at San Diego State University, students in Honors 113, under the guidance of Dr. Kristen Maher, collected, organized, and analyzed data pertaining to park usage in Lemon Grove. Data collected for this project included a survey of students’ initial impressions of Lemon Grove and observation data from each of five city parks: Berry Street Park, Lemon Grove Park, Civic Center Park, Firefighters Skate Park, and Dan Kunkel Park. Park data were based on observations made over the course of three weeks (September 16 to October 7, 2016) at different times of day. Data points for each park included how the city’s parks were used during this span of time, who used them, and how often they did so. Observations were also made related to each park’s appeal, safety, and areas for improvement. This report offers findings from this data collection as well as recommendations intended to improve the parks in Lemon Grove and increase the city’s appeal to visitors and new residents.
