At a joint workshop set for Monday, May 16, the Trails and Equestrian Commission and the Parks, Recreation, Senior and Youth Services Commission will brainstorm ideas for events that Blenheim Facility Management can host throughout the year at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park.
Public access to the 70-acre riding park off of Ortega Highway has historically been a point of contention for some residents, while others say that the park has always been open for everyone to enjoy. The park was part of the Open Space Bond Measure Y purchase of 132 acres in 2010.
Under Blenheim’s management agreement, the company is required to provide at least six special community events throughout 2016. Thus far, two separate Two Stepping Under the Stars events are scheduled for July 29-30.
The workshop begins at 4 p.m. on Monday at City Hall. To read the full agenda report, visit www.sanjuancapistrano.org.
