South Hills Park, the gateway to the South Hills Wilderness area and trails system, will soon get a facelift with new amenities for visitors to enjoy.
Part of improvements implemented under the Parks and Trails Master Plan approved in June 2011, the new amenities are designed to make South Hills Park a destination park and “make a positive impact to the surrounding community,” according to a city written statement.
Previous plans for a dog park were shelved, but some interest during surveys for the Parks and Trails master plan brought a dog park in Glendora back into consideration.
The survey was based on 3,000 responses to a city mailer. While a dog park didn’t top the list of other Parks and Recreations needs or concerns, dog park amenities were included in renovations for South Hills Park.
Other new amenities include a fitness track circling the entire park, a larger playground with new equipment and swings, improved restroom facilities, new barbecue pits and shade structures.
