The following information was released by the City of Los Alamitos.

The City of Los Alamitos invites the community to a groundbreaking ceremony of Coyote Creek Park on Monday, October 15, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. The Coyote Creek Park project focus is to create a passive recreation area with landscaping composed of native plants of significant ecological value to the region to attract habitat, and restore the site from a barren utility corridor into a passive greenway park along the Coyote Creek Channel.

All residents, businesses, non-profit organizations and families are invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony located at the Coyote Creek Park site. The park is adjacent to Coyote Creek, Oak Middle School and the Royal Oak Mobile Home Park. The public can access the park from Oak Street, bordering the Oak Middle School parking lot. “I am delighted that this project is becoming a reality after all these years,” said Mayor Troy Edgar. “The addition of four acres of park space in our city is exciting and needed, especially since passive recreation space is important to the residents who live in an urban environment. I look forward to seeing the community walking, running, biking and jogging through this soon-to-be renovated recreational area.”

In 2005, the City of Los Alamitos was awarded funding in the amount of $1,440,000 from the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy (RMC) to create a recreation parkway at the specified park site. The grant funds for the project come from the RMC through Proposition 50, the Clean Drinking Water, Coastal and Beach Protection State Bond Act of 2002.

The project site borders Coyote Creek flood channel and the regional bike trail along Coyote Creek, both of which are maintained by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works (LACPW), between Cerritos Avenue and Katella Avenue. The parcel is approximately 2,500 feet in length and approximately 4.0 acres. The site is comprised of a Southern California Edison (SCE) right-of-way area, an SCE easement for an existing oil pipeline, and an additional easement area for Orange County Flood Control District (OCFCD). The OCFCD easement is used to maintain the Los Alamitos Channel, an earthen channel which flows through the site from the northeast to southwest. The walkways will be constructed with non-pervious materials to allow storm water to percolate back into the ground. The development of a park is an opportunity to provide a prototype for the modification of single-purpose land use restrictions to multi-purpose land uses.
