Monrovia Canyon Park will once again welcome visitors starting Monday, Aug. 30. The park has been closed to the public since last when the Bobcat Fire burned hundreds of acres in Monrovia.
“Staff and volunteers have contributed countless hours repairing trails, clearing fallen trees, painting facilities and aiding in regrowth,” Monrovia City Manager Dylan Feik said in an update last week. “The community is invited to enjoy all hiking trails, including the Waterfall Trail, Nature Trail, Bill Cull Trail, Cunningham Overlook Trail, and the Ben Overturff Trail!”
City officials ask that visitors take extra precautions when walking, biking, or hiking in the park as the earth remains unstable with loose gravel and rocks along the trails.
When it reopens, visitors will need to make reservations to enjoy Monrovia Canyon Park. Timed reservations are now open on the city’s website. The park is open Sunday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and there is an admission fee of $5 per vehicle on weekdays, $10 on weekends. Monrovia Canyon Park will be closed to cars on Tuesdays for routine maintenance, but visitors can still access it by bike and foot.
“Our park may look different, but it’s still a gem in our community!” said Feik.
