Bonelli Regional Park is making waves again, this time to prevent the popular Raging Waters amusement park from expanding. In recent years, Raging Waters, a 50-acre water-slide attraction in the northwest corner of the 2,000-acre Bonelli Park, has been drawing huge crowds on peak summertime weekends.

In this case, it was not the chicken or the egg that came first, but a laughing young Irish couple who wanted to escape the rigors of city living.

The City Council has approved the sale of a city-owned property--one of the last open spaces downtown--for development of a two-story commercial building. For more than two years the council has discussed selling the 17,500-square-foot site, which it acquired for $212,000 at the height of the real estate boom nearly a decade ago, said Kenneth Duran, assistant city manager. The property was sold to developer J.B. Construction for $155,000.

La Verne city officials say a county environmental assessment of development plans for neighboring San Dimas' Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park is inaccurate and flawed.
