Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
Open Space Projects
Within the City limits are two County regional parks, Bonelli Park (1650 acres) and San Dimas Canyon Park (130 acres). Open space in San Dimas is evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Preservation of natural areas, wildlife habitat, wetlands, agriculture, and visual corridors.
- Linkages and trails, access to public lakes, streams and other usable open space lands, stream corridors and scenic corridors along existing highways.
- Conservation of natural resources including, but not limited to, forest lands, rangelands, agricultural lands, aquifer recharge areas, and surface water.
- District parks devoted to low-impact recreational uses.
- Implementing greenways and open space policies or strategies.
Open space contributes to the quality of life in the city by providing a buffer between urban and less developed areas, enhancing property values, and adding to the enjoyment of the commercial or high-density residential areas.
