Why Save West Coyote Hills?

North Orange County deserves its fair share of parks. There is a great imbalance of parks and open space between North and South Orange County. North Orange County is highly urbanized with few parks and even fewer opportunities for new parks. Comparing parks per capita between North and South counties :
• North Orange County has 1 acre per 246 people.
• South Orange County has 1 acre per 6 people.
The National Recreation and Parks Association standard for parkland is 1 acre per 100 people. Within 7 miles of West Coyote Hills, there is only 1 acre per 356 people! Let’s not let the opportunity for a West Coyote Hills park slip away from us!
