The historical landmark that gives Eagle Rock its name is a local treasure, and we are glad to announce that the project to improve the rock monument area has been completed.
Over the past two years, Councilmember Huizar’s office has worked in collaboration with the Bureau of Engineering and the Department of Recreation and Parks to initiate the Eagle Rock Monument Improvement Project. In September of last year, the project got underway and this coming Thursday, May 3, at 9 a.m., we will celebrate its completion and open the new space with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Eagle Rock Monument Improvement Project has significantly improved the area around the base of the Eagle Rock along Eagle Rock View Drive. It includes new native drought-resistant landscaping with a state-of-the-art efficient irrigation system. A new decomposed granite walkway and split rail fence have been constructed along Eagle Rock View Drive. Furthermore, a natural grade drainage swale with boulders and landscaping was installed to help divert storm run-off. Together, these and other improvements make this special, iconic place even more beautiful and inviting for our community.
So, please join Councilmember Huizar, the Department of Recreation and Parks, the Bureau of Engineering, and local leaders, volunteers, and students for our Eagle Rock Monument Ribbon Cutting Ceremony this coming Thursday, May 3, at 9 a.m. on Eagle Rock View Drive at the base of the monument.
If you have any questions or concerns about the ribbon-cutting ceremony or the project, please do not hesitate to contact the CD 14 Northeast field office at 323-254-5295.
