Join Mayor Tornek This Morning as He Walks the Arroyo

Explore the City’s Great Space—September 16 and 28, October 14 and 26

Published : Saturday, September 16, 2017 | 1:37 AM

The Arroyo Advisory Group (AAG) announced today that Mayor Terry Tornek has set aside four mornings to walk the Arroyo Seco in support of the AAG’s ‘One Arroyo’ effort.

Mayor Tornek has been a strong proponent of addressing long standing Arroyo Seco issues and he would like to hear the public’s thoughts on how to preserve its character and beauty, maintain it, and appropriately enhance it for the enjoyment of future generations.

Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco is comprised of almost a thousand acres. From the headwaters in the North to the tributary waters in the South, its natural habitats, resources and historic sites are unlike any other and are enthusiastically enjoyed by millions each year for recreation and enjoyment.

This great city park has seldom been conceived or designed as one continuous space. After extended review and discussion the AAG identified the ‘One Arroyo’ concept to unite the three areas of the Arroyo—Hahamongna, Central Arroyo and Lower Arroyo—under a singular vision.

By joining the Mayor on his ‘Arroyo walks’ the public will experience the distinct sectors of the Arroyo and the trails that connect them. They will see first hand the opportunities that exist to restore and enhance the Arroyo. The ‘Walks’ offer the public an opportunity to engage with AAG’s ‘One Arroyo’ project, to contribute and comment.
