I don’t know why we expanded like this. I guess I’m a damn fool and like to work and create things. We had to have jobs, industry. San Diego wasn’t like Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Steel.
Aerial view of Westgate Park, 1958. It was an ideal place, really. It had beautiful trees and access from north, south, east, and west. Lots of parking. It was just ideal. We used about 20 acres on the eastern end of the farm. The park itself only seated 17-18,000 people.
