In 1899, "green space" in these parts had an entirely different meaning than it does today. Here in a remote canyon, local sportsmen introduced golf to Orange County. Santa Ana and Orange duffers leased land from the Irvine Co. and laid out a nine-hole course. The "greens" were oil-soaked earthen patches and the fairways were little more than brush-cleared canyon bottom. It must have been hard to make par in Golf Canyon, as it became known.

Peters Canyon Regional Park, the most recent addition to the county park system, is a rolling swath of green that straddles the Orange-Tustin border, with a lake at the north end, eucalyptus groves at the south and a well-developed trail system. Since it opened a year ago, the 354-acre park has become a popular destination for mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, equestrians and nature enthusiasts.

Re "Activists Angry Over Fate of Cats," (April 26): I can understand that Boeing Co. wanted to remove the cats from its Seal Beach property and perhaps it is unfortunate that the earlier agreement about these animals was not honored. However, by far the larger issue is that a professional pest control company would dump these cats in parkland in "an outlying part of Orange County." That these cats were probably eaten by coyotes is the best one might hope for. A far worse possibility is that they might have survived to prey on the native birds and wildlife of the area.

A new hope for commuters struggling with traffic congestion on the Costa Mesa Freeway was unveiled by city and county officials Thursday with fanfare and a dash of controversy. For the first time, a 5-mile extension of Jamboree Road was opened to commuters Thursday. The $30-million addition stretches from Irvine Boulevard in Tustin to Santiago Canyon Road in Orange. Within the next year, officials plan to extend the road even farther, through the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.

A plan to preserve the county's regional park system in areas that become part of new or existing cities ran into trouble Wednesday when three of the five members of the Local Agency Formation Commission objected to it. The plan was proposed Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors, which asked the commission to prohibit development on regional parkland when it approves annexation or incorporation proposals.

Orange County's 17 regional parks are as understaffed and short of funds as are its public gardens, and they also welcome volunteer help. In April the county formalized its Adopt-a-Park program to add focus to those efforts. "Our program is modeled after the Caltrans's Adopt-a-Highway program, which has been incredibly successful," says Kathie Matsuyama, senior landscape architect at the county's Environmental Management Agency.
