The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, a nonprofit that works to revitalize neighborhoods in southeastern San Diego’s Diamond District, is spearheading the restoration of a portion of Chollas Creek.

The center is turning the formerly polluted waterway into a linear public park and community gathering space. Part of the new park’s design includes a large-scale public art element that will work to improve the aesthetics of the notoriously neglected creek.

On this week’s San Diego Explained, VOSD’s Kinsee Morlan and NBC 7 San Diego’s Monica Dean explain Chollas Creek’s progress and the future artwork planned for it.
