Re: Piece of Mind column, "Giving fields a sporting chance," July 15. Many of us — hikers, runners, walkers, bicyclists, equestrians, artists, scientists, children, families — go to Hahamonga because we need wild spaces, unpredictable surfaces, plants, trees, flowers, running wild water, birds, small mammals, deer, bumblebees and the occasional coyote and bobcat. We live nearby because it is there and easy to access, and it gives us what we can't find in the urban/suburban landscape.

A 30-acre parcel adjoining Pasadena and La Cañada, known as the Hahamongna annex, has been the topic for much debate over the nine years since Pasadena regained ownership of it. Pasadena sold the property to the Metropolitan Water District, and then bought it back for $1.2 million when MWD planners decided the property wasn?t needed for a settling basin. The 30 acres lying between the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Devil?s Gate Dam have been the subject of numerous meetings and planning sessions involving stakeholders from La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and Altadena.

PASADENA ? The city of Pasadena's plan for the future reuse of the 30 acres of land adjacent to La Cañada known as the Hahamongna Annex will be unveiled at a public meeting at 6:30 tonight (Thursday, April 19) at the Salvation Army offices, 960 E. Walnut. The land, which houses a fire camp, forestry service officers and equestrian stables, was purchased by Pasadena from the Flood Control District. It was linked by name to the 1,300-acre Hahamongna Watershed Park, and the city promised to limit uses to recreation and open space.

The La Cañada Presbyterian Church will hold a variety of services on Easter Sunday. On March 31, the church will hold a sunrise service at Hahamongna Park at 6:30 a.m., followed by morning services in the sanctuary. A sunset service will take place at 5:05 p.m. in the Worship Arts Center. The Easter services vary in style. A 7:55 a.m. service is traditional, while the service at 9:25 a.m. is a part traditional, part contemporary. A late-morning service at 11 a.m. and the sunset service are both more modern.

A planning session last Saturday on the future use of what has become known as the Hahamongna Annex produced a room full of ideas from trails, equestrian and recreation leaders from La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and Altadena. Three scenarios and a number of variations were the product of a planning charrette, a term for face-to-face bargaining sessions. The scenarios looked at a variety of possible uses for the property, which was bought by the city of Pasadena from the Metropolitan Water District after the city leased the property for a number of years.

A recent Eagle Scout project in Hahamongna Watershed Park improved a stretch of local trail, but it also gave rise to a border dispute between Los Angeles County and the city of Pasadena. On Dec. 8 members of La Cañada Flintridge Troop 507, their friends and family came out to help Makoto Inouye, 17, finish the Eagle Scout project he had planned with the help of county Parks and Recreation Department employee Ron Beltran. The volunteers repainted the concrete pedestrian and equestrian tunnel that passes under Oak Grove Avenue, added 130 feet of split-log rail fencing, put down decomposed granite to improve the trail and added a new sign.

Local homeless man William “Wild Bill” Pluma Barrios left an impact on La Cañada Flintridge during the years he was seen around town, and the community hasn't forgotten about him in the wake of his death of undisclosed causes in October. Barrios, who lived in the Hahamongna Watershed Park, was 54 when he died. He was known around town as a colorful character, but was also known to local law enforcement for public drunkenness and occasionally other disruptive behavior, said Sgt. Debra Herman of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station.

Friday marked the end of an era at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, as dozens of scientists, engineers and others gathered to catch one last glimpse of the Endeavour, the shuttle that carried many of their experiments and projects into space. More than 100 JPL employees and a handful of guests congregated in the sun-soaked parking lot on the research facility's Cardiac Hill, lining the edge of the lot with camping chairs and improvised shade providers. Hundreds of people lined Oak Grove Drive just outside the campus to watch Endeavour - and NASA's shuttle program - head for a final landing.

The Pasadena City Council Monday night will take up the plan for the 30-acre Hahamongna Annex at its meeting at Pasadena City Hall. The planning effort for the northern annex to the Hahamongna Watershed Park has been underway since 2005, when Pasadena purchased the property from the Metropolitan Water District. The work has included residents from Pasadena, La Cañada and Altadena who remain concerned about some aspects of the proposal. Mary Barrie, a trails advocate from La Cañada, said she objects to the removal of some 70 non-native trees from the annex, including some mature species such as stone pines, Chinese elms and California peppers.
