This 3.4-mile walk is primarily comprised of level paved streets and bike paths traversing the finest tidelands and wildlife refuge in the world. As a result of development, most of the native wetland habitat has been lost over the past 150 years due to dredging and business operations. This resulted in the loss of 42 percent of San Diego Bay’s historic shallow sub tidal habitat, 84 percent of its intertidal mudflat habitat, and 70 percent of its salt marsh habitat. In recognition of the need to restore the Bay’s historic coastal habitats, a partnership of local, state, federal, and non-governmental agencies was formed. Awaiting discovery are the Salt Ponds, the Chula Vista Bay Front Master Plan Project Area and the magnificent views at Marina View Park.
