Abandoned lemon grove on State Park property.

Document Description
This project would build a 3,000-4,000 sq. ft. visitor center with interpretive exhibits, restrooms, highway improvements for safe access, an entrance road, a parking area, outside interpretive elements including viewing areas and trails, limited picnic areas, landscaping, and other amenities. The visitor center would be designed to provide information to the urban areas surrounding Chino Hills State Park and serve as a trail access point for the portion of the park within Orange County. An abandoned lemon grove currently occupies the site that is adjacent to a heavily traveled two-lane highway. The highway improvements may require utility relocation, turning lanes, acceleration /deceleration lanes, or signalization. The highway improvement description will be further refined during the design and environmental review process. Moderate grading will be required to make the site suitable for the proposed uses.
