So much fun and worth the five dollars to enter. Canyon Park has my vote and 80 acres with waterfalls await. Monrovia Canyon Park is a small, 80-acre park that sits just outside the boundaries of the Angeles National Forest in the foothills of the San Gabriels Mountains.
Do check out the Sawpit Dam its 147-foot tall and orchestrated in 1927 (flood control dam) yet engineers discovered the foundation under dam was too weak to hold the water it was designed for. T
he reservoir behind it was never filled to capacity because it wouldn’t have withstood an earthquake. As a result the DPW--- Department of Public Works--- turned it into a free-flowing waterfall by cutting a notch into it.
Worth a visit and the views from hiking trails are wonderful.
