A frequent question for many Los Angeles archers and Rancho Park archery range regulars is, “Is it ready yet?”
The wait for the range to re-open is like being on a long road trip. Initially you’re excited when the trip starts but after a while you just want to know how much longer. And many LA archers want to know are we there yet, and for good reason. Construction began July 2014, so we’re going on two years without one of LA’s favorite archery ranges.
As of now, the answer to the “is it ready yet?” question is still no. That said the re-opening may be close.
The last projected opening time was Spring 2016. But, according to a Project Manager at the LA Parks Foundation, who have been getting many inquiries about the re-opening of the range, the estimated completion time has been pushed back to late Summer 2016.
So hopefully it will definitely be re-opened by Fall 2016. Until then here are some of the latest pics from the constructions site. And you can read an earlier post of ours for details on the range’s upgrades.
