There’s more to love in Mission Valley.

Mission Valley is the epicenter of convenience—indoors, outdoors and in-between. But that’s Mission Valley today. Its rich and varied history endows it with many more layers of experience than can be discovered at 65 MPH. Life in the valley started with the San Diego River. And yes, there really is a “mission” in Mission Valley—it’s the historic Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala and it’s located near Qualcomm Stadium. There’s also Mission Trails Park offering 40 miles of hiking and biking trails just a few minutes past the stadium. From Mission Valley, you can head west to the beach, east to San Diego State University and the mountains, or southwest to San Diego International Airport, the art scene in Balboa Park, University of San Diego and Mission Bay Park. From high fashion, craft brews and first-run feature films to the great outdoors—it’s all part of life at Civita.

With all this nearby, it’s easy to see why Mission Valley residents have the lowest commute time in all of San Diego.

Civita Founders Give Back – San Diego River Foundation

The San Diego River flows through the heart of Mission Valley, quietly winding its way from the Cuyamaca Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. The land for a 17-acre community park adjacent to the river was recently donated by Civita’s founders, the Grant family. The park, to be operated by the San Diego River Park Foundation, will feature the San Diego River Discovery Center—an interactive learning and educational facility slated for community gatherings and educational opportunities. The park will offer public access to the wonders of the river, and will also be highly accessible, within walking distance to a San Diego trolley station and several bus stops.
