Officially closed on October 31st, 2013, the Puente Hills Landfill, located just south of the 60 freeway near Hacienda Heights on the south side of the San Gabriel Valley, has sat largely untouched over the past three years. But what to do with the 630 acre mountain of trash that was left behind?
Thanks to the active participation and engagement of people like you, the final park design calls for multi-use trails, trail lifts, recreational facilities, open space, habitat restoration, performance space, interpretative elements, and wildlife corridors connecting existing canyons and natural areas in the Puente-Chino Hills, and even a bike park!
Now it's up to the Board of Supervisors to sign off on a park design that will transform one of America’s largest former landfills into a recreational asset for the region.
Here’s how you can help:
- JOIN US at the Board meeting!
- When: Tuesday 10/25 (11:00am)
- Where: 500 W Temple Street, Los Angeles CA
- Email your Supervisor! Let them know you support a multi-use Puente Hills park that provides a diverse array of recreational opportunities including multi-use trails and a bike park.
