If you are considering a move to Chula Vista, California, you likely want to know a little about the city, which is in San Diego County, and is the second largest city in the county. Chula Vista is only a short drive to both San Diego and the Mexican border. While you will likely have fun visiting both San Diego and many of the several Mexican border towns, there is much to love about the city itself.
The U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista allows Olympic and Paralympic athletes to train year-round. It includes facilities for sports such as beach volleyball, soccer, tennis, track & field, and many other sports. While it might be great to know your favorite athlete is training only a few miles from your home, that likely is not enough if you are a hardcore sports fan. Guided tours of the facility are available Saturdays at 11 am. Groups of more than 10 people should call ahead to reserve a weekday tour. Self-guided tours are also available daily 9 am-5 pm.
Chula Vista also offers sports opportunities for people of all ages. There are sports programs for youth and teens as well as adult sports programs in softball, kickball, soccer, golf, and basketball.

Chula Vista also has a water park. Aquatica includes water slides, tube rides, wave pools, and other water attractions. While the water slides have minimum height limits of either 42” or 48”, there also water attractions for smaller children. Slippity Dippity was even created specifically for those under 42” tall.
While water is a big part of the outdoor adventure Chula Vista has to offer, the city has other outdoor fun. For example, there are nearly 560 acres of parkland in the city. This includes areas for playing soccer, basketball, tennis, and other sports. It also includes walking trails, dog parks, playgrounds, and other great areas to enjoy the outdoors, whether by yourself or with your children. Perhaps one of the most unusual park features is Montevalle Park’s “Cheryl’s Place”, which has playground equipment specifically created for children in wheelchairs.
