The Friends of Rose Creek advocate for environmental and racial justice and to insure that everyone has access to nature in their community. This is our core, this is who we are. We support Black Lives Matter in the march towards building a better world. We recognize that Rose Creek flows through Kumeyaay land and are honored to do our part in caring for this amazing place. We invite collaboration with all communities.

Our vision is for lower Rose Creek to be an open space park providing recreational and learning opportunities and a clean, healthy, aesthetically pleasing environment for residents, visitors, businesses, and native plants and animals, while serving as an accessible link for bicyclists, pedestrians, and wildlife to move between Rose Canyon Park, Marian Bear Park, Mission Bay Park, and surrounding communities.
