Due to its proximity to the freeway, a transportation theme was selected for the recreational area. It was estimated the project would be completed by the summer of 2003.

Returning to her home off of Angeles Crest Highway shortly after noon one Wednesday in August 1982, a woman discovered a burglary in progress. On seeing her, the thief, with pieces of the victim's jewelry in his hand, allegedly said, “Get out of the way or I'll kill you.” Then he walked calmly out the front door. At least $3,800 in jewelry items were taken.
