The Mt. Helix Park Foundation is a 501(c)(3) California non-profit public benefit corporation which receives no government funding. The Foundation was formed in 1999 to maintain and preserve Mt. Helix Park, a registered California Point of Historical interest. The Park, including a 1600-capacity outdoor amphitheater was built in 1925 and gifted to the County of San Diego in 1929 by the founding Yawkey family. Since the Foundation has taken over governorship from the County, the Park has seen many improvements including electronic entrance and exit gates, security cameras, a picnic area, a Park walking trail with interpretive signage, and a Park office to house part-time staff.
The Foundation also provides an array of free community programming encompassing education on the environment, conservation, arts, and culture. These programs specifically provide the community a natural outdoor oasis to learn about habitat restoration, local geography, California native plants, the solar system (through astronomy nights), and Native American history. The Park amphitheater also offers the community the opportunity to enjoy musical theater productions.
