A beginning phase of a fundraising campaign for the project is in the
works. It will include an eye-catching sculptured relief of the river and a
seating area. This will be a grand display capturing the history of the San
Diego River as the birthplace of California, the first place that European
settlers landed in what would become our state. This sculpture will recognize the history of the
San Diego River and
Mission Valley, and affirm the river’s historical
and cultural significance
as a portent of the impact
that the Discovery Center
at Grant Park will have
on the local and regional
community. This artistically created three-dimensional piece will incorporate water, landAerial photo of the Grant Park area courtesy of Marco Sessa of scaping, and stones enSudberry Properties, Inc

will create a base of funding to support the continued planning for the project, as well as serve as a permanent testament to the support of the community for this project. Five hundred stones are available in this first
phase at $500 each.
Look for a final concept plan to be formally unveiled at the Night of
Discovery gala to be held February 26, 2010 at the San Diego Natural History Museum.
This shared vision of a people place which celebrates the San Diego
River and engages the community in the River’s future promises to be a
treasured resource for all San Diegans.
