The Port of San Diego, with the help of a number of dignitaries from local cities, the county and federal governments, officially broke ground Monday, Oct. 3, 2011, for the port's 18th public park.

It is called Ruocco Park for Lloyd and Ilse Ruocco, the late San Diego couple who provided funding to help build the bayfront park.
