CHAPTER 7. PARKS, RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE ELEMENT
7.1 Goal and Objectives
The overall goal for parks, recreation and open space in the Sabre Springs community is to DEVELOP ADEQUATE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RECREATIONAL FACILITIES AS NEEDED BY THE COMMUNITY, WHILE PRESERVING A MULTIPURPOSE COMMUNITY OPEN SPACE NETWORK. This goal is further elaborated by the following objectives:
Provide an accessible neighborhood park on each side of Poway Road, tailored to
meet the needs of residents and working persons in Sabre Springs North and South.
Meet community park-level needs through expansion of one neighborhood park.
Plan elementary school recreational facilities for public use in conjunction with the
neighborhood parks during non-school hours.
Encourage the development of private and commercial recreational facilities in conjunction with attached residential projects, industrial park areas and commercial centers.
Along the creek beds and lakes, preserve open space areas to provide passive public recreation and visual enjoyment, as well as to protect floodways, creek habitat and selected cultural resources from development.
For areas characterized by steep slopes or geological instability, preserve open space areas in order to control urban form, ensure public safety, provide aesthetic enjoyment and protect biological resources.
Ensure the open space network within the community ties into the existing and proposed open space systems in the adjacent Poway, Carmel Mountain Ranch and Miramar Ranch North communities.
Establish mechanisms for development and operation of public parks and preservation and maintenance of open space.

A. Park Service Districts
For Sabre Springs, the City’s Park Service District map shows two neighborhood park districts: one encompassing the planning area north of Poway Road (Sabre Springs North) and a second covering the area south of Poway Road (Sabre Springs South). These districts should remain as they are.
