Welcome to the City’s Trails and Open Space program!


Here you’ll find a useful source of information about the various trails and open space opportunities that the City of Glendale has to offer. We encourage you to browse the various sections of the site and discover how you and your family can participate in one or more of these exciting and rewarding programs.

Today, the City owns and manages 5,034 acres of natural open space.  Over 30 miles of fire roads and 7.5 miles of single track trails are utilized by dozens, even hundreds, of hikers, joggers, dog-walkers, and mountain bikers each day – particularly in Brand Park and Deukmejian Wilderness Park.

Based on the current budget, the Community Services & Parks Department can only offer a limited Trails and Open Space program which operates largely through the dedication of community volunteers.  Current efforts are funded by the Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation which provides equipment and supplies for our Third Saturday Wilderness Workdays in Deukmejian Wilderness Park and our Riverwalk Workdays along the L.A. River.  The Foundation also sponsors our Interpretive Programs, the Trail Maintenance Crew, the Trail Safety Patrol, the Iris Gardeners, and the GO! (Glendale Outdoors!) nature education program all of which are supervised by the Department but carried out by community volunteers.
