New Park Improvements Planned for Glen Helen
(Best Syndication News) The Glen Helen Regional Park at the 215 and the 15 Freeway interchange near Devour will receive a facelift soon, a county representative tells Best Syndication.
There have been quite a few upgrades to Glen Helen since Apple Computer founder Steve Wozniak promoted and held the “us Festival” there back in 1982. The San Manuel Amphitheater (formerly known as the Glen Helen Pavilion, Hyundai Pavilion, and the Blockbuster Pavilion), which was created specifically for the festival, is the largest outdoor amphitheater in the United States.
The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved $50,000 to improve the RV overnight parking at the county facility. There are two fishing lakes, a swimming lagoon, an amphitheater, and picnic area at the location.
“The $50,000 allocation at Glen Helen will pay for the RV hook-ups that will give overnight campers another opportunity to enjoy the regional park,” said County Supervisor Josie Gonzales, who is spearheading the improvements via her discretionary funds.
The improvements will not be completed before the next concert season begins in April. The season will last through November.
The BOS also approved the new Baker Family Learning Center in Muscoy. The county is expected to spend around $327,500 on the facility. “I am especially proud of the community center project, the first capital improvement investment of its kind in Muscoy,” the Supervisor told Best Syndication.
The Muscoy and Devour improvements are part of the second quarter spending plan.
