Briercrest Park is a small yet lovely park located near the Grossmont Healthcare Center in La Mesa. I was originally drawn towards this park when I learned that James Hubbell and the Hubbell & Hubbell architecture studio had designed multiple features in the park including a mosaic butterfly along one of the pathways, a labyrinth as well as some mosaic pieces on the bathroom walls.
This place ended up exceeding my expectations pretty quickly when I stumbled across five giant wind instruments for the public to tinker with. The thing about these instruments though is that they play so beautifully!
I can see musicians coming out here to record sound for their albums they are that beautiful. There is also an herbal “sensory” garden with labels of each plant.
There is a small rock-climbing station and whimsical paths that seem to have more thought than your average playground/park. I have already visited this park two times now to show different friends. One day I’d like to come out here with a handful of musicians to watch them shine their magic on the instruments!
