The Mission Canyon Regional Park project envisions formalizing a multi-benefit regional trail on a former 500-acre landfill. The landfill has been closed for over 50 years and ultimately its intended use, after operation, was to be converted for open space and recreation purposes. The proposed improvements include a 2.5 mile loop trail and regional connection, flush toilets, picnic tables, native planting, fitness stairs, interpretive elements, gates, fencing, and other amenities.
