Looking for a tranquil spot, far away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego?
Mast Park in Santee may be just what the doctor ordered.
The Park covers around 100 acres, and its vast open spaces offers a welcome break from urban living. Mast Park is the largest of Santee's eight parks and since 2012, it's being restored to a beautiful haven of nature.
