Recreational hole in one

June 08, 2007

Re "How can L.A. create better places to play?" June 1

This article about creating more recreational options for city residents is timely. As the number of people living in Los Angeles continues to rise, our parks seem to be shrinking.

Los Angeles has an excellent opportunity to add to its parkland inventory with the purchase of Verdugo Hills Golf Course in Tujunga. Located on the northeastern edge of Los Angeles, the 18-hole, par-3 course is less than a mile from Glendale and within minutes of the unincorporated areas of L.A. County.

A multi-jurisdictional purchase of the property makes good economic, as well as recreational, sense. In addition, more than half of the 63-acre property is undeveloped parcels and hillside that could very well interest the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. With a four-party purchase, the property could become a recreational goldmine.
