      Bob — Yes, the county does have plans to widen that stretch of Temescal Canyon Road. It was included in TCR improvements announced by the county in October 2015. But two other areas along TCR will be widened before this one (should begin late this year or early next year), because of the complexity of the El Cerrito widening and the need to purchase easements from property owners. You can learn more about it here:

    When there are events at Deleo Park how to vendors sign up to participate? I am a Tupperware Vendor looking to set up at events.

      Michelle — Most of the community events at Deleo Regional Sports Park are handled by the county’s Economic Development Agency and the MARS recreation program. Rebeckah Ross might be able to assist you: RKRoss@RIVCO.ORG. The Temescal Valley Community Faire also offers booths for local businesses. Here’s the flier from last year, but the contact info is the same:

    How can the community get the summer camp program back? Pay a fee? Attend meeting? Inquiring minds want to know.

      Some parents called to complain when they learned there would be no summer program this year. With budgets pretty well set, I foresee no changes this summer, but I think after the first of the year would be the time to start lobbying for a program in Summer 2018. Here is the email address to the county’s Economic Development Agency that oversees park and recreation seervices in the unincorporated county areas such as Temescal Valley:

    No summer camp? What does the county provide us for our children in this community other than a bookmobile and two movies in the park? Maybe Annexation would be best. You should see the programs available to the kids in Corona. Our children have nothing in this community.

    1. admin Post author

      Brooke — Due to budget constraints the county will not have a summer camp at Deleo this year, but several activities — all free, are planned for Deleo Park. In addition to the Movies in the Park, a Summer Splash is planned on Saturday, June 24 (see this month’s calendar.) The popular Halloween Trunk or Treat will be held in October, as well as the Holiday event featuring Santa and snow. I’ve seen the programs available to the kids in Corona — very cool, but they are not free. Please know that non-Corona residents can sign up for any of those programs and will be charged a higher non-resident fee. Additionally, we’re checking with the county to see if they can charge a fee to maybe off-set the costs of providing the Deleo Summer Camp.

    Hi, will there be a summer program for the children again this year at Deleo Regional Sports Park? If so, how do I sign my children up for it?

    1. admin Post author

      The county says that due to budget limitations there will be no summer day camp program for kids this year at Deleo Park. For more information on county programs at Deleo, email:

      Gina — I’m assuming you are asking about the movies sponsored by the county at Deleo Regional Sports park? I cannot answer your question at this time. Currently, I am looking into the recreational services provided by the county to Temescal Valley residents. I’ll let you know when I receive a definitive answer.

    2. admin Post author

      Here’s your answer, Gina! The county’s EDA Department this summer is planning two Movie in the Park events at Deleo Regional Sports Park. “Moana” on July 22 and “Finding Dory” on Aug. 12.
