The rain is wonderful and makes the park so GREEN!! However, it also disrupts our parking lot. The Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park sits on a lot of granite. Our trails and parking lot are made of the crunched up granite, called decomposed granite or DG for short. We love the DG, but sometimes it can get a little too soggy. People are light enough to not cause damage, but vehicles can create deep ruts in wet DG. Our Parks staff has assessed the parking lot and it’s too saturated for cars to drive on. As a result, the parking lot and nature center will remain closed all weekend. Staff will reassess next week.
Please enjoy the park at one of the other entrances, including the beautiful entrance at Sycamore Highlands Park just up the street off of Lochmoor Drive. Happy hiking! #mysycamorecanyon#parksmakelifebetter#naturecenter

Earlier today, representatives from Glendale Parks and Open Space Foundation, Glendale Unified School District, and the City of Glendale's Community Services & Parks Department accepted a grant awarded by Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital for the One Glendale After School Youth Sports Program.
One Glendale After School Youth Sports Program is collaboration between all three agencies providing structured recreational sports programs to youth who attend eight south Glendale schools and are in the 4th and 5th grades. To date, the program has served 3,120 youth over the course of 15 program seasons that include flag 🏈football, 🏐volleyball, 🏀 basketball and ⚽️soccer.
We are very grateful to Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital and the Community Grants Committee for selecting the One Glendale program. Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation president, Kate Eberle summed it up during her acceptance speech stating that the program is a great example of how it is a community program. It involves all City departments from Glendale 👩🚒👨🚒Fire to Glendale 👮♀️👮♂️Police Department as well as other city departments, local non-profit agencies and service providers, who are all present during the games. Members of City👨💼👩💼 Council, 🌳Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission commissioners, 🌱Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation members, and various community groups show their support for the program by attending and taking part in 🏆trophy and 🥇🥈🥉medal ceremonies. The students enrolled in the program continue to see their coaches when they enroll in the department's seasonal day camp program or attend a city wide special event where the climbing wall is present. One Glendale is a true example of how it brings the entire community together.
