Allied Gardens History

Allied Gardens was developed by Louis L. Kelton and Walter Bollenbacher in 1955. They purchased the 1,000 acres (4 km²) from the Waring estate. Their original business name was the Allied Contractors, hence the name.

Allied Gardens Facilities

The Allied Gardens Recreation Center and Allied Gardens Pool are located on Greenbrier Avenue, next to Lewis Middle School. Further down the hill, just off Greenbrier on Estrella, are the community Little League fields. The area has a small business district located on Waring road between Orcutt and Zion, where it borders the community of Grantville. The abundance of parks and schools in the community has resulted in a very family-friendly reputation.

Schools & Education

The area is served by the San Diego Unified School District. The neighborhood contains Foster Elementary School, Marvin Elementary School, and Lewis Middle School. Older students from the area attend Patrick Henry High School, located between San Carlos and Del Cerro on Wandermere Ave.


The area is part of City Council District 7, represented by Councilman Scott Sherman. It is part of the Navajo Community Planning Area. In 2005 the City Council granted the area status as a redevelopment area.

Allied Gardens Recreation Center

The Allied Gardens Recreation Center was built in 1961 as a result of strong community organization and effort. At one time the site held two large radio towers that belonged to the Marietta Broadcasting Company. When the towers were re-located, the land was leased to the City. Soon after, the land was purchased and the recreation facility was built on it.
