On the wild outside chance we might be in the CA area on that day, is the park by any chance Semitruck usable?
Finally took a run up to the park (I have the month of July off, from work, so have been staying home & playing with the animals!) also had our daughter & son-in-law take a look on their way up to the San Dimas Cyn Dog Park - we both agree, yes, the road and parking are semi-truck friendly. Of course this is from people who have never hauled anything larger/longer than a boat or horse trailer! Hey! if you can make it we'll send you home with some pomegranates;)! See "food" post.

First thanks for looking! We get to CA about weekly when I came back out and we do our team driving. I have been staying home myself these last few weeks, so know about the staying home and playing with animals bit. :cool::D Going back out this next week. :( That pomegranate offer would be great! Thank you for offering even if it doesn't end up working out. That's very sweet of you.

I've never posted on this forum(hi, I'm Courtney!! I recently adopted/rescued a young sulcata), but I'm in southern California. 90712
I know of a few parks.....Heritage Park is very nice. El Dorado Park is huge. Mayfair Park is nice (but gets kinda crowded on the weekends). Heartwell Park is also nice. All of these parks have a ton of trees. Heritage, El Dorado, and Heartwell have duck ponds with quite a lot of turtles.....although El Dorado's has become pretty gross.

We are still ON for this date, time, and location. Who can confirm that they are coming? It's gonna be a hot one. I'll bring carne asada, tortillas, and drinking water. And maybe some beer.

I was worried this weather we're having was gonna' scare people off:cool:! We'll be there (2)! Chips & salsas (a couple different types), tubs of ice with bottled water plus . . . "other" drinks, and I just found a new recipe for chocolate/caramel turtles, I'm thinking a must for this group!
Josh, what do you think about a couple of directional signs, maybe on Foothill Blvd. at San Dimas Cyn Rd. pointing north to the "picnic" area? I'll be back at work on the 2nd, so I'll have access to all the supplies to make posters if needed.

I love this thread! We moved to La Verne a year ago, and I drive right past the San Dimas Canyon sign every day. So my zip is 91750. I know someone in San Dimas that has a colony of sulcatas, that is probably not part of this forum. One of his males has got to be 140 pounds. Big guy with a perfect smooth shell.

By the way, La Verne was voted one of the top ten towns in the country to raise a family, in Family Circle Magazine this past month. Love our town! http://www.familycircle.com/family-fun/money/10-best-towns-for-families-2010/?page=5

depending on my working schedule, army duty, and other things in life, Littlefoot and/or I will try to make it and bring something tasty. We should make a Poll to get a final count.

YAY!!!!! I'm happy I caught this thread in time, so I can try and make it! San Dimas Canyon Park is about an hour to hour 1/2 from me. I live in the greater Los Angeles, so thats not a bad drive at all.....we just might swing by Las Vegas while we are at it. Haha! :p

San Dimas Canyon Park is less than an hour from the LA Zoo...and a little more than an hour and a half from Oceanside...just some quick logistics for you.:)
