The Hahamongna Multi-Benefit Project is a program proposed by the City of Pasadena to implement parts of the Arroyo Seco Master Plan approved by the Pasadena City Council in 2003. It is comprised of three projects:
Sycamore Grove Athletic Field: This project will create a new athletic field and expand the current parking lot in Hahamongna Watershed Park. Twenty-seven acres in the middle of the Hahamongna basin will be filled in, compacted and elevated to place the athletic field and parking lot above the area that floods frequently. The project will also include relocating the current disc golf course onto the twenty-acre elevated pad and the expansion of the current parking lot from 100 to 200 parking spaces along with various storm drain improvements.
Westside Perimeter Trail: This project will improve 1,900 linear feet of trail, from the recently completed Flint Wash Bridge Trail Crossing to the proposed Sycamore Grove Field. The project will include a combination of historic trail restoration, trail realignment, installation of a 40 foot bridge crossing over Berkshire Creek and raising a portion of the trail above its current elevation so that it is above the level of frequent flooding for hikers and equestrians.
Restoration of Berkshire Creek: This project will restore a small canyon on the west of Hahamongna Watershed Park and reestablish the stream course that has been severely degraded by the high urban storm water flows through this canyon. The project will improve water quality by eliminating the large volume of trash that empties into this canyon and further into the Hahamongna basin and will also restore habitat. A portion of this project will be completed under the Multi-Benefit project.
