New park with horse arena opening in the San Fernando Valley

March 15, 2013 |  5:57 pm

A new park is scheduled to open in the northwest San Fernando Valley Saturday featuring the area’s first equestrian arena.

According to a statement from Los Angeles Councilman Mitch Englander, Aliso Canyon Park includes trailer parking, a staging area, cross ties and an automatic horse waterer. Walking paths, picnic tables and a pedestrian bridge over a small creek designed to protect the area sensitive habitat are also features of the park.  Other highlights include security solar lighting and landscaping with California native plant species.

The park was upgraded in 2010 using grant funding and the goal is to “preserve it as open space and save it from development,” according to the statement from Englander.

The grand opening is scheduled for 10am Saturday at 18041 Rinaldi Street in Granada Hills.
