Supervisor Cox knows that living in our hectic, crowded urban communities, we need places close by where we can experience tranquility and enjoy the splendors of nature.
That’s why Supervisor Cox received the Outstanding Public Official" award from the National Association of County Parks and Recreation Officials and the national “Planning Advocate Award” from the American Planning Association for his leadership efforts to create active transportation and open space projects.
The San Diego region boasts a chain of expansive river parks that stretch from the mountains to the sea, and reach from the San Luis Rey River Park in the north to the Sweetwater Valley Regional Park, the Otay Valley Regional Park and Tijuana River Valley Park in the south.
Over the years, Supervisor Cox has worked passionately to create a robust system of trails for hikers, bicyclists and equestrians. He has pulled in more state funding to build campgrounds and staging areas for hikers.
For decades, he has led the multi-year development of the iconic Bayshore Bikeway, a popular and nationally recognized bike path that circles San Diego Bay, providing bicyclists with breathtaking views and opportunities to explore our diverse and vital communities.
Supervisor Cox invites you to get out and play and make our County parks your personal playground!
