Del Cerro (Spanish for "of the hill") is a residential[1] neighborhood of approximately 2,300 residents[2] in the eastern part of San Diego, California. Del Cerro borders the communities of San Carlos, Allied Gardens, College Area, Grantville, and the city of La Mesa, and is adjacent to Lake Murray[3] and San Diego State University. For planning purposes the city includes it in the Navajo community planning area.[4]



The Del Cerro area was developed as a residential suburb during the 1960s and 1970s.[5]

The San Diego State University Master Plan[6] has proposed to build a housing project for faculty and staff on university-owned undeveloped open space[7] in Del Cerro (at the site of Adobe Falls,[8] a city historic landmark). The plan to expand the university's facilities into Del Cerro was initially proposed in 2005 but was blocked by a judge's ruling.[9] The plan's Environmental Impact Report had been contested since 2005 through litigation brought by the Del Cerro Action Council, the City of San Diego, and others. On February 11, 2010 a judge issued a decision in favor of SDSU, but the city appealed the denial of its writ and the case is now pending at the Court of Appeal.

The area is vulnerable to wildfires, but residents have battled with the city over getting permission to clear brush from slopes and around homes.[10]



The community's commercial center along Del Cerro Blvd. includes a Windmill Farms, a Chevron station with mini-mart, two liquor/deli stores, a Mexican restaurant, fitness spa, dental office, and several other professional services.


The community includes the western end of Mission Trails Regional Park.


Community groups

Volunteer community groups include the Del Cerro Action Council.[11]

Annual events

A Block Party is held annually with live bands, food, and entertainment for children.

The private Del Cerro Park Pool hosts an annual Fourth of July party with food and games for its membership. The park will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the 2011 Fourth of July party.


The area is served by the Mission Times Courier, a greater area community newspaper delivered to residents and covering Del Cerro news.[12]



Del Cerro is located in City Council District 7 and is currently represented by councilmember Marti Emerald.[15]
