The FUTURE of GRANT SCHOOL!
Mission Hills, are you ready for this? Our neighborhood is about to get a brand spanking new school campus! Yes, that's right, Grant K-8 is slated to get a complete rebuild, except for an historical and relatively new building or two... This will be huge for our neighborhood as our kids will get state-of-the-art classrooms and the amenities they deserve. As an added bonus to the community they are planning joint-use facilities and open spaces. Want to learn more? Want to actually contribute to the design and amenities list? You are invited to come give input at a series of community meetings. See below for full details and let's make our public school GREAT!
The Mission Hills Garden Walk 2013
The 15th annual Mission Hills Garden Walk, themed "Something for everyone," takes place Saturday May 11, 10am-4pm.

Annually, on the Saturday before Mother's Day, the Mission Hills Garden Club hosts its Garden Walk. With its mix of historical architecture and sensational gardens, the walk always offers plenty for garden enthusiasts to admire.
The walk always begins at the Mission Hills Nursery, which Kate Sessions, "Mother of Balboa Park," created. A great way to avoid the crowds is to walk the route backwards, this enables you to enjoy a leisurely walk at your own pace and enjoy this truly beautiful neighborhood with all it's mature gardens and historical homes.
