Atop his chocolate mare JJ, Rene Herrera follows a dirt path from Gabrielino Equestrian Park on the eastern end of Hansen Dam Recreation Area to a nearby creek shaded by cottonwoods. Families with coolers and bags of food have beaten Herrera and two other horse riders there, seeking refuge in the wooded waterside from temperatures in the 90s. While a dozen children splash around in a swimming hole, the adults kick back in hammocks and camp chairs, eating grilled chicken and shooting the breeze.

A spectacle of sound and light returns tonight to Hansen Dam Park for the first time in 15 years. Fireworks and classical music will be offered at the Lake View Terrace location as one of dozens of Independence Day events in the San Fernando Valley.

Once-fuzzy concepts for exhibits at the city's new Children's Museum have been nailed down to the last high-tech detail and are ready to be built. New York-based designer Edwin Schlossberg unveiled his ideas late last year for exhibits for the $20-million, energy-efficient structure to be built in the Hansen Dam Recreation Area in the northeast San Fernando Valley. Museum Director Candace Barrett admitted that the proposed exhibits were difficult to visualize.

Councilman Ernani Bernardi on Wednesday called for a 90-day moratorium on construction and demolition in the Hansen Dam Recreation Area, which he hopes will prevent owners of property near the park's entrance from building an auto-repair shop. The city of Los Angeles wants to acquire the 0.85 of an acre in Lake View Terrace for use as a park gateway. A used-car lot and a fast-food restaurant now occupy the parcel.

Work began in January on a 10.5-acre fishing, boating and swimming lake system in Lake View Terrace that will restore a major outdoor attraction to the Hansen Dam Recreation Area by October 1996. Many Valley residents fondly remember weekends spent on the shores of Holiday Lake, a 120-acre body of water used by water-skiers, fishers, boaters and swimmers that had formed naturally behind Hansen Dam in a large excavation pit.

Community support for the Hansen Dam Recreation Area as a permanent home for the San Fernando Valley Fair is growing as the fair returns this week to the Lake View Terrace site for the third year. The board of the Lake View Terrace Improvement Assn. has voted to endorse the proposal, and a recent poll soon to be released by Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City) shows that the majority of those responding favor Hansen Dam as a home for the fair.

The Wildlife Waystation, barred from giving public tours or accepting new animals, may face a criminal investigation over alleged violations of environmental codes, a state official said Sunday. Animal waste flowing from the compound, home to nearly 1,200 animals, could be seeping into nearby creeks and a recreation lake, posing a human health risk, said Mervin Hee, a regional enforcement director for the state Department of Fish and Game.

Despite a warm reception in recent years by neighbors at its Hansen Dam Recreation Area site, this year's San Fernando Valley Fair will open Thursday at a new location, in Burbank--a move designed to save thousands of dollars for the annual event. The switch to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center is expected to save the cash-strapped 51st District Agricultural Assn.
