Families from all over Southern California ascended upon Paramount Ranch Saturday for the 2nd annual Rec Fest. “We wanted to introduce people who have never been to the park to discover all the recreational opportunities available…,” said Park Ranger Ken Lowe, ” And we wanted to show people, locally, what we offer.’
The National Park Service brought in 24 bus loads of people from L.A. and the inner city to introduce them to the great outdoors of the Santa Monica Mountains. The event included rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and nature sketching.
