The city of Santa Clarita will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Saturday to kick off construction of the first public park in east Canyon Country. The city will spend $402,000 to develop a five-acre site off Begonias Lane, west of Shadow Pines Boulevard. The land was deeded to Santa Clarita by Los Angeles County when the city annexed the Pinetree/Timberlane area last year.

The city's interest in luring the prestigious Southwest Museum away from Los Angeles has been dimmed, if not put out, by the relocation's $35-million price tag. In a letter to the city, the director of Los Angeles' oldest museum said that while the area has good freeway access and proximity to other communities that would support a museum, the city still has to demonstrate it has the population and financial base to build the museum and sustain it.

The Castaic Lake Water Agency and the city of Santa Clarita are close to a deal over 122 acres of land that civic leaders have long coveted as a site for a central park. Although the deal is not yet final, Santa Clarita officials are already gleefully salivating over the future of the property they believe the Castaic Lake Water Agency will lease to them for $100 a year. The initial lease would be for 15 years.

Gregory Espinosa and Adam Gardner have finally found a library that suits them. They are hunched over a brown tabletop scaled to their 6-year-old bodies, shouting and furiously wiggling joysticks so their Totally Awesome Duelin' Dudes will pummel one another. No one is shushed. No one hears "Careful!" as they pluck items off the shelves. No one is told to walk rather than run. This is a toy library. "I like it," said Gregory. "I like the games." Adam is more succinct. "Cool."

Train stations and busy public buildings may not seem likely canvasses for depicting scenes of nature, but for artist Viqui McCaslin they are perfect. The City Council recently selected McCaslin's work from among that of dozens of local artists to enhance the Santa Clarita Transit Center on Soledad Canyon Road. Her design calls for covering two concrete arches at the station with terra cotta slabs picturing frolicking antelope amid images of ancient Indian feathers.
