Giddy up, LakesideDianne Jacob Lakeside Equestrian Park is ready for action. After nearly three years in development, the ~14-acre space is now open — a fitting addition to the East County community known for its rodeo culture.

It’s named for former San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacob, a horse-lover and proponent for outdoor spaces. The park honors these passions with amenities that can be used by both humans and horses, including:

  • A large, covered, open-air arena
  • An uncovered, outdoor arena
  • A banquet hall
  • Livestock corrals
  • Park amenities like picnic equipment, restrooms, and a shaded pavilion

While many of the park’s features accommodate equine and livestock events, there is also a public-use space that will be open daily, sunrise to sunset, unless there’s an event. Other gatherings are also expected to trot into the park, like farmers markets and community celebrations.
