San Diego: Otay Mesa - Nestor

The Otay Mesa-Nestor area is located in the Southern region of the City of San Diego, and is bounded on the north by the City of Chula Vista, on the east by the community of Otay Mesa, on the south by the Tijuana River Valley and the San Ysidro community, and on the west by the City of Imperial Beach. The Otay and Tijuana River valleys define the northern and southern boundaries of the planning area and are characterized by wetlands and riparian habitats influenced by seasonal rains and stream flow. The Otay Valley Regional Park (a joint planning effort by Chula Vista, San Diego, and the County of San Diego) will link San Diego Bay to the Otay Lakes while providing recreational and educational opportunities for community and regional visitors.
