Potential dog park location identified

A potential location has been identified for an Alhambra dog park at New Avenue on the border of San Gabriel in the City Yard. At an Alhambra Parks and Recreation commission meeting held Thursday night Director of Community Services, Cynthia Jarvis told the commissioners of the location, adding that more research will be needed to determine feasibility. One challenge is that it ownership of the lot — located right on the border line of Alhambra and San Gabriel — is split and it is unclear if the city of San Gabriel has any plans to develop this area.

Other projects addressed at the meeting included:

  • The installation of field lighting at Almansor Park
  • The removal of the pool and accompanying building at Story Park are on hold until further notice due to funding.
  • Almansor Court and Alhambra Municipal Golf courses are moving forward with a roof replacement.
  • One of the last projects former City Manager Julio Fuentes completed before he left was the replacement of broken trees wells at ACI & Golf course. They were removed, tree roots were ground, the tree wells replaced, the asphalt was patched around the tree wells and new trees were planted.
  • The Almansor Park playground, which was last renovated 20 years ago, is getting a renovation and the contract execution is in process with Little Tikes Commercial. The funding was identified to renovate the playground and the City Council approved the request to release a Notice Inviting Bids.
  • The Little League is in progress of installing a new scoreboard and due to the rain has delayed installation. The project began on Monday, February 4th, 2013 and completion is anticipated by the end of the week.

Alhambra resident Lola Armendariz raised concern for the lack of “Private Property” signage around the parks that would prevent residents from setting a tent, or bringing their pets to the parks. Cynthia Jarvis stated that with the new program introduced by Mark Yokoyama on January 14th at a City Council meeting, Park Rangers would be highly helpful to help enforce rules at parks.

  1. Reseidents of Alhambra will pay for this dog park so that residents in Rosemead, Monterey Park, and San Gabriel can enjoy it too.
