It doesn’t snow very often in Altadena. It snowed pretty well way back in ’32 and in 1949, which set the record for the heaviest accumulation of snow seen around here.

That all changes on Saturday December 11th when L.A. County Parks & Recreation brings part of its 40 TONS of “Winter Wonderland” to Alta Loma Park.

The snow, part of Parks After Dark, will give the public a chance for a little “Wild Life” in the snow from 4:00 – 8:00 pm. No reservations are needed. There will be a Sled Hill and a place for snowy play. Rumor has it Santa will be there, along with hot cocoa, Holiday Crafts, Food Giveaways’, stockings with gifts for kids – Of course the snow will melt, and the food and gifts are available until they’re gone. It should be a great time for all. Dress in layers, and show up early before it all melts away!

Located at 3330 Lincoln Ave., Altadena, Loma Alta Park sits on land Joshua Reed Giddings sold in 1954. The Park was “Erected by Committee of Conservation Altadena KIWANIS Club for the Preservation of Wild Life” in that same year. So, in truth Loma Alta Park has never really seen much snow. Turned out to be a good thing for the baseball, ballet, swimming, horse riding and other popular recreational activities the park is known for!
