County to Break Ground on New Orange Grove Park in Hacienda Heights


  • Don Knabe, Chairman Pro-Tem, Supervisor, County of Los Angeles
  • Sean Rogan, Executive Director, CDC
  • Russ Guiney, Director, Department of Parks and Recreation

WHAT: Following active community involvement during the three-year planning and design stages, Los Angeles County officials will join in the groundbreaking celebration for the future 5.5-acre Orange Grove Park.

The Community Development Commission of the County of Los Angeles (CDC) is overseeing the development of the new $4.029 million park funded by the office of Fourth District Supervisor Don Knabe.  Orange Grove Park will include a new graded roadway and pedestrian ramp, parking for 15 vehicles, restrooms, shaded picnic areas, playgrounds, walking paths, and an exercise course with fitness equipment.  The park will feature a unique sundial entry plaza with celestial bodies and orbit patterns depicted in colored concrete with a sandblasted finish, and a wide range of drought tolerant plant material containing both native and non-native species.

Orange Grove Park is made possible with the support of the County’s Fourth Supervisorial District, the CDC, the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, community members, and the design team of Katherine Spitz and Associates.
