A partnership between the Port of San Diego and City of Chula Vista, the 535-acre Chula Vista Bayfront redevelopment envisions a world-class destination in the South Bay – a unique place for people to live, work and play.
It is designed to create new public parks and recreational adventures, improve the natural habitat, offer new dining and shopping options, provide a world-class hotel and convention center, and more – all for residents and coastal visitors to enjoy.
The Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan is a local and state-approved land use plan by the Port of San Diego and City of Chula Vista. The plan envisions:
- 70 acres of new parks (100 acres total, including existing parks)
- 120 acres of open space, habitat replacement, wetlands and ecological buffers to protect wildlife habitat, species and other coastal resources
- Shoreline promenade, walking trails and bicycle path network
- 2,850 total hotel rooms
- 600,000 square feet of restaurant, retail and marina-support uses
- 220,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial recreation/marine-related office uses
- 1,100 – 3,000 space parking facility
To be built just north of the Gaylord Pacific Resort and Convention Center where construction is underway, Sweetwater Park is envisioned as a natural habitat-oriented recreational open space to showcase the unique natural wildlife assets of San Diego Bay, encouraging passive activities to complement the adjacent Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge.
Harbor Park, along with the future Sweetwater Park, will account for more than half of the new park space planned for the Chula Vista Bayfront.

Located at E Street and Bay Boulevard, this RV resort includes a mix of RV sites and vacation cottage rentals with a variety of upscale resort amenities including an onside café and bar, indoor/outdoor gym, arcade, welcome center and pool with panoramic views of San Diego Bay.
Sweetwater Bicycle Path & Promenade - Now Open!
Sweetwater Bicycle Path & Promenade (Sweetwater Path) is a new multi-use pedestrian and bicycle path that connects Bayside Park, the marinas, and more to the northern area of the Chula Vista Bayfront where Sweetwater Marsh, the Living Coast Discovery Center, and the new Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay RV resort are located.
Pacifica Companies is in the planning stages for a residential, hotel and commercial development to be located on a City of Chula Vista parcel near the marinas. The finished project could include 1,500 condos, the first phase of which would be just under 200 units. There will also be up to 420,000 square feet of commercial space, and a 250-room hotel. It’s being designed to be pedestrian friendly incorporating wide public plazas and promenades within the interior and exterior of the community.
