Promontory Community Park
This park offers the District's only synthetic multi-use field that is highly utilized by competitive and recreational focused user groups. The park's design was a collaborative effort between the CSD, residents and sport groups. The result is a park that features children's play areas, sport fields and courts, a picnic area, natural grass and more. Today, Promontory Community Park serves many recreational needs for local residents.
