Rustic Canyon Recreation Center - JUNE 4th PARK DAY

 

You will see the recreation center, the parking lot and the pool area as you enter Rustic Canyon Recreation Center and Park. Once you park, you can make your way down to the lower area where the playground and tennis courts are. You can take the gated driveway, stairs or ramp down to the lower area. I plan to be near the playground (which is also right near the tennis courts). It's not big or confusing - It's a very small park and you won't get lost. Bring a blanket to sit on the ground if you like.  

 

PARKING:

  • There is free parking on the premises. It's a small park and spaces can be limited. It's okay to park right by the recreation building (as long as you are not in red zones) and along the trees at the far end. There is some street parking available, but not a lot. It's a quiet (exclusive - some nice homes over there; no, I don't live there - I wish!) so be sure you are parking where you are allowed to park if on the street.

 

Covid/Pandemic precautions: We are outdoors and transmission is extremely unlikely in this environment according to medical professionals and rates are very low. I do not require masks, but you may wear one if you like (I don't see anyone wearing masks at the park even though the webpage says to wear one - I don't think it has been updated). Just please be aware of and respect each person's personal comfort with distance, some folks don't care at all and some do. On my end, I'm fine with hugs (I am fully vaccinated and boosted for Covid)   PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU or YOUR LITTLE IS SICK (even if it's a cold) or IF SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS ILL. I will have another Park Day in August or September.

 

If you are able to make it, I would love to see you. Babies and children are welcome, of course! There is a playground and many beautiful climbing trees. I may sometimes get names and identities mixed up - so I plan to have name tags there. Please help me out if I get befuddled with names - it's not personal   It all looks different in person vs. a Zoom screen and also when I don't see you with your "class"!   I plan to make a homemade carrot cake (my favorite!!!), but I won't have drinks - BYOB (bring your own bottle of water). You are welcome to bring a picnic or do whatever makes you happy

I can't wait to see you there and meet your baby!

Temescal Gateway Park  - APRIL 10TH PARK DAY

 

I plan to be located near one of the "amphitheatre" areas; both are by the back parking lot near the bathrooms and general store (not sure if this still exists, but that building). I noted the areas on the map attached below. You can arrive any time you like. It's a Sunday, so parking might be easier earlier than later. I teach at noon so I will be leaving by 11:15 am. You can stay longer, of course! There is lots to explore there and beautiful hiking trails.

 

PARKING:

  • LOT PARKING is $12 if you park on the grounds of the park. You pay at the machine and place the ticket in your car. The ranger LOVES to give tickets (we got one on New Year's Day one year for making a U-Turn ), SO if you drive onto the grounds follow ALL stop signs - and no rolling stops and make sure you have the receipt for your paid parking located properly in the front window of your car.

  • FREE parking is located on the street on Sunset Blvd (on either side of Temescal Blvd) and also on Temescal Blvd. Palisades Highschool is located on one corner and parking is on the street alongside the high school. Read all posted signs to make sure you are not in an area where there is no parking allowed or any time restrictions. Please use the crosswalks and do not run (jay walk) across Sunset Blvd (cars go really fast and it's curvy). If you need to drive onto the grounds to turn around to go park on the street DO NOT make a U-turn (you can get a ticket if the ranger sees this - I know from personal experience!), turn left into the first parking lot and it will circle you back to be able to go back out onto the street (be sure to make a COMPLETE stop at the stop sign.)
