Limited Opening of Monrovia Canyon Park January 23

Canyon Park will reopen on a limited basis on Jan. 23, 2023. Parts of the park will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays by reservation only. Details on how to get a reservation will be announced  

However, work on the park is far from done. The city has been working with a landscape designer and is considering a number of enhancements, including a sculpture honoring fire fighters and park rangers that may be placed near the ranger station, drought tolerant plants, picnic tables, and an enclosed entry kiosk.

Obviously, this will cost money, and City Manager Dylan Feik writes: "I received a message yesterday from Congresswoman Napolitano's Office that a $3m earmark for Canyon Park Repairs is including in the FY23 Omnibus Appropriations Bill (pg 76 here). This is a huge deal for us!"

  1. The proposed statue - are both figures of firefighters or, is one of them a Ranger in a firefighting suit?

  2. Will the park opening include being able to use the fireroad / trail up to White Saddle?

    1. Don't know for sure, but I would guess that the trail will be open as I believe it was undamaged.

  3. MOrning Brad, I was just hoping this was the day. Do they have the link up yet to make reservations?

  4. I haven’t heard anything yet. I’m anxious, too.

  5. Pete and I super encouraged at this news of a canyon opening . With all this rain I’m thinking it may be much later , it is still encouraging they are purposing an opening .
