New from Karl: Drone video of Aquatic Center at Standley Park and Construction Start at Spreckels Elementary


The blue fabric has been removed from the fencing and that’s good news! That means the SDUSD construction of a joint-use Aquatic Center, pavilion, walking path, and restored ball fields at Standley Middle School adjacent to Standley Park is nearing completion. As one project ends, another begins at Spreckels Elementary School.

From Karl Cranford, JK Computer Services ( As a long time University City resident, it is always fun to fly the drone with a mission.  Seeing what is behind the Blue Wall (blue fence) at Standley Park is fun, and I hope that community residents enjoy it as well.

The latest installment in the Behind the Blue Wall series was published on YouTube in January 2022 and features drone birds-eye views of both the nearly-competed Aquatic Center and the start of construction at Spreckels Elementary adjacent to Standley Park in University City, San Diego.
