Topanga State Park Public Input Meeting

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

by K. Graham

Los Angeles – California State Parks welcomes the public’s input toward the development of interpretive exhibits in Topanga State Park, located in the communities of Pacific Palisades and Topanga in the City of Los Angeles. A public meeting is scheduled at the Skeet Lodge at Trippet Ranch in Topanga State Park (20825 Entrada Road, Topanga, California 90290) for October 19, 2006 with a greeting period at 5:00 pm, and the formal meeting starting at 5:30. Please dress warmly.

Improved interpretive facilities are being planned at three areas within the park; Trippet Ranch, Hub Junction and Los Liones Canyon. At Trippet Ranch, the historic Skeet Lodge will be renovated for use as an interpretive center. At Hub Junction, which is a confluence of several major trails, interpretive panels will be constructed. The proposed work at Los Liones Canyon will augment the current outdoor classroom and native plant demonstration garden by enhancing the interpretive trail to better serve all visitors.

An interpretive plan and exhibit plan now under development will cover the improvements at all three sites. Bang! Creative will be presenting a Schematic Plan to the public for review and comment, this plan will include: proposed interpretive goals, discussion of the visitor experience and an exhibit area walk-through describing general content of each exhibit and the interpretive techniques proposed.
