Big Rock Park--West Santee Neighborhood Park (Santee Parks Part 6)

If you live in the west end of Santee, you will want to visit this five-acre neighborhood park with entrances located off Mesa & Prospect and also on Arlette St. adjacent to Chet F. Harritt Elementary School. Not only does this Santee Park offers lots of fun activity areas including basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts, it has gazebo picnic benches, grills, two playgrounds and an open green space.

The park like many of the Santee Parks, it is dog friendly with special time for off leash playtime: Monday through Friday, dawn to 9:00 a.m.
The park is also the home of the City’s summer day camp. A modular building (CSD-1) in the northwest corner of the park has served as the recreation program classroom.

One of the other exciting activities, that many of the Santee Parks permit, are Air Jumps.

Before or at the end of you visit to this park, you will want to hike on one of the Trailheads to the Mission Trails Regional Park located next to the park .
