Pacoima Wash Natural Park
801 8th Street, San Fernando, CA
Managed by the City of San Fernando and built by the MRCA, 4.7-acre Pacoima Wash Natural Park provides walking trails, stunning views of the Angeles Forest, and a beautiful shady picnic area under a grape arbor. Designed in the local Spanish Mission style, artistic features such as custom tile, decorative iron work and gates, and quaint bridges complement the native plants and trees.
A beautiful respite to enjoy a walk or a picnic under the shade of sycamore trees, the park also diverts and cleans water running off of neighborhood streets by channeling water through a system of built and natural filters and into a streambed, or “arroyo” adjacent to the wash. Up to 371,000 gallons of water–enough to fill 8,800 bathtubs–is able to infiltrate into the ground and into the San Fernando Groundwater Basin, reducing our need to import water.
