Pasadena to Break Ground on Arroyo Trail Project, Enhancing Accessibility and Safety

The City of Pasadena and the One Arroyo Foundation are hosting a groundbreaking event for the One Arroyo Trail Critical Linkages Project on Saturday, July 13.

The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. at Brookside Park Picnic Area G (south of the park), at 360 N. Arroyo Blvd. It will mark the beginning of an initiative to revitalize the Arroyo Seco’s trail system, according to a city statement. The project aims to address the deterioration of the trail system by connecting three distinct areas, improving trail conditions, and reopening the historic Mayberry-Parker bridge.

“We are thrilled to initiate this project, which not only enhances the safety and accessibility of our trails but also preserves the natural beauty of the Arroyo Seco for generations to come,” Mayor Victor M. Gordo said in the statement. “This project represents a significant investment in our community’s health, well-being, and enjoyment of our unique urban open space.”

The Arroyo Seco, encompassing nearly 1,000 acres of urban forest, offers 22 miles of potential continuous trails and serves as a vital resource for Pasadena residents. However, heavy use, erosion, and deferred maintenance have rendered some trails inaccessible and unsafe, prompting the need for this revitalization effort.

“The Arroyo Seco is the crown jewel of west Pasadena, and we’re so excited to break ground on this project to improve miles of well-loved trails in this beautiful natural resource,” said Vice Mayor Steve Madison. “A project of this type is long overdue, so thank you to the One Arroyo Foundation for helping get shovels in the ground.”

The groundbreaking event, which is open to the public, will feature remarks from Madison and other community leaders. Attendees will have the opportunity to show support for the ongoing efforts to enhance the Arroyo Seco and ensure its accessibility for future generations.
