State Park
The Ranch-wide Agreement sets forth the intention to establish a California State Park on Tejon Ranch, and the parties further agreed to “use their reasonable best efforts to work with California State Parks” to plan for a new State Park. Immediately following the signing of the Ranch-wide Agreement, the parties focused on mapping and resource assessments to determine the right parameters for a new State Park. Then, as state budget issues emerged and park closures were proposed statewide, creative new approaches were brainstormed in consultation with senior leadership at California State Parks. However, continuing severe budget constraints within state government have led to a hiatus in the active planning for a new State Park. The Conservancy and other parties to the Ranch-wide Agreement remain committed to use their reasonable best efforts to seek establishment of a California State Park at Tejon Ranch.
