General Rules and Regulations

Each Open Space property may have area specific rules and regulations.  When entering a property, you are responsible for complying with the rules that apply.  Check the entrance sign or kiosk for rules and regulations for each specific area.

Inquiries and/or Emergencies

For a life-threatening emergency, call 911.  For general information, inquiries or issues, call (661)286-4177 or make a request using the City’s eService feature.

Wildlife and Geologic Features

Many of the plants, animals, archaeological and geological features are fully protected by the law.  Feel free to photograph and enjoy them but please leave the wildlife undisturbed.  As the seasons change we start seeing various types of wildlife, as we encounter Spring and Summer we might start seeing rattlesnakes.


There are designated parking areas for each Open Space property.  City parking is FREE of charge.  Consult the park entrance for specific instructions.

Private Property

Private residential properties border some Open Space properties.  Cooperation of private landowners is essential to conservation efforts and expanding Open Space properties.  Please respect their land by staying in designated areas and following all rules and regulations.


Dogs must always be on a leash


Equestrians are welcome and encouraged to use Open Space property.
