The Rancho Park archery range is currently closed. It is currently undergoing construction to expand the number of available ranges. When the construction is done there will be four ranges, at least that’s the plan. There will be a 50, 30, 18, and 10 meter range. The 10 meter will be for classes.
Currently the facility consists of a single 30 meter range which had to accommodate archers of a variety of skill levels, frequently shooting at the same time. With the increased popularity in archery, an expansion for the facility will be welcomed.
Construction began July 28. The estimated construction time is 6 months. Odds are it may take a year. Hopefully not. During this time, the range is closed for all purposes (i.e., classes, open shooting, training, etc.).
Until the range reopens, Rancho Park archers must look elsewhere to continue there practice. The following is a list of ranges to check out. Many of these ranges also offer classes for beginners.
Woodley Park Archery (Sherman Oaks)
El Dorado Archery (Long Beach)
Pasadena Roving Archers
South Bay Archery (Rancho Palos Verdes)
Mile Square Regional Park Archery Range (Orange County)
Archery Outpost (Los Alamitos)
