Local residents are railing against a city project to build a fence around Moorpark Park, saying it will give the park a closed-in feeling, and the money it will cost could be better used elsewhere. The city Recreation and Parks Department is building an imitation-rail fence around the park, at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Moorpark Street, to keep children who use the play area from running into the street, park officials said. But Tony Lucente, president of the Studio City Residents Assn.

Studio City will get a new--albeit small--park based on a decision Wednesday by the Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Commission to spend $375,000 for land next to the Studio City Library. The land is part of a .45-acre vacant parcel on the corner of Moorpark Street and Whitsett Avenue that the city has been eyeing for an expansion of the library. But the city's Library Department does not need and can not afford the entire $1-million parcel for the expansion.

In a case being watched closely by a host of San Fernando Valley golfers, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge Monday refused to throw out a lawsuit that seeks to evict the operators of Studio City's only golf course. The Weddington Investment Partnership, owners of the 17.2-acre urban plot on which Studio City Golf and Tennis sits, filed suit earlier this summer in an attempt to evict the operators, claiming their lease expired in 1985.

Basketball players who were crushed when the city closed the basketball court at the Studio City Recreation Center have insisted they can police themselves. At a community meeting last week attended by players, neighbors and a police officer, park officials said that the basketball backboards would remain hoop-less for an indefinite period, but left the door open for a compromise by which they could be reinstated.

The law enforcement branch of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy has announced it will implement a leash regulation in a popular dog-walking section of the site beginning June 1. But dog owners and area residents say the rule--coupled with a plan by some neighbors to expand parking restrictions--could spoil an urban escape.

The Los Angeles parks department will modify recent and proposed improvements to Laurel Canyon Park, a heavily-used, off-leash dog exercise area on Mulholland Drive. A series of enhancements to the park, including installation of a 15-inch curb along its steep, narrow entrance, infuriated park users who said the concrete and steel used in the project ruined the park's rustic setting.

Greening the urban gray for nearly four decades, the land occupied by the popular Studio City Golf Course is up for sale. People who know area real estate say the $10-million asking price is a bargain and, should it sell, the property could be open to development. The 17.2 acres in the heart of Studio City--sporting a nine-hole golf course, driving range and tennis courts--are being offered for sale by the Weddington Investment Partnership.
