SAMLARC is also working to maintain the sports fields and recreational spaces within the community. Field restoration is occurring at Vista Verde Park, Altisima Park, and Cañada Vista Park. A field rehabilitation process called “Drill & Fill” is also occurring at Tijeras Creek Park. The project will improve the quality of the park soil and ensure that the grass is able to establish a healthy root system. These procedures will help SAMLARC’s parks to continue supporting a wide range of recreational activities.

Please look into each of these teams to see what sport(s) would be the best fit for your child! We cannot wait to see you out on the field! For more information, please contact Pat White, Park Use & Sports Field Manager, at or 949-709-4017.
