The North Etiwanda Preserve is a very popular hiking destination for Country residents and those who travel to the County for recreational opportunity. Due to concentration of cars at the entrance, large potholes formed as cars traversed past the gate. Users of the parking lot accelerate to walking pace once they pass over the speed bump, this acceleration on the gravel surface, over time, created those potholes. Staff frequently worked with shovels and rakes to perform temporary repairs, but a long-term solution was necessary. With the introduction of a nominal parking fee last year, sufficient revenue was generated to allow paving to occur. On March 7 2022, staff and the contractor began work, with minor inconvenience to patron’s, and completed all work in one day. Patron praise occurred almost immediately as the entrance project was completed.
