Visitor Information

University Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City of San Diego.  It is located on the southern rim of Mission Valley between SR-163 and I-805.  San Diego's first trolley took visitors to the Mission Cliff Gardens and the Harvey Bentley Ostrich Farm located at the end of Park Boulevard. 

In addition to supplying feathers for women's hats and dresses, the ostrich farm allowed early San Diego residents to ride the huge birds. San Diegans came to the park in droves to picnic and enjoy the views of Mission Valley.  There was dancing in the pavilion and a merry-go-round.  The park closed to visitors in 1929, and the land was sub-divided into homes in the 1940s.  The new Trolley Barn Park was built in the style of the original park.
