Honorable Mentions

Hal Connely Throwing Center at West Los Angeles College in Culver City. There now is an All Weather Track on the other side of the campus, and four cages and a landing area for Hammer and Discus training, which is harder to find than a decent track. The new throwing area is nearing completion--I hope to get pictures of it soon.

Aerial Photo Almansor Park, Alhambra is a large, city park, surrounded by all weather surfaced paths.

Aerial Photo Evergreen Jogging Path, East Los Angeles is a sidewalk wide all weather path that goes around a square (but certainly not flat) section of East Los Angeles. Actually what it goes around is the Evergreen Cemetary just down the street from my favorite East L.A. Mexican Restaurant. It seems to be just short of a mile and a half around, with driveways and utility boxes interrupting the surface occasionally.

Aerial Photo Tanaka Park, Long Beach is a small, narrow, city park, surrounded by an all weather surfaced path.

Mike Powell SS (Edgewood High School, West Covina) Agoura Hills (See also Westlake Village and Ventura County)

Agoura High School August 2001 No No Thousand Oaks Blvd. at Argos St., 1 block East of Kanan Blue. This track has an extra 9th lane about 1 1/2 feet wide filling the space from lane 8 to the fence. At least it gives them somewhere to put the soccer bench and hurdles--don't try to run this lane. ! Has barricades but I haven't seen them used--it is nicely lit at night. One of the runways has disintegrated, the other runways and lane 1 are now showing very bad deterioration. This doesn't appear to be related to consistent wear as much as poor (inconsistent) installation being aggrivated by normal use.


Deena (Drossin) Kastor South 8 100m Aerial Photo 900 ft. Arcadia

Arcadia High School No No

Duarte west of Santa Anita Host of perhaps the best mid-season High School Invitational in the country, yet they have to conduct it with cones in place of a curb. West 9 100m Aerial Photo 425 ft. Azusa/Glendora (see also Pomona)

These two tracks are barely 1/4 mile apart but are technically in different cities. Azusa is West, Citrus in Glendora is East

Azusa Pacific University 2006 (Yes) metal Adjustable Inside

Citrus Avenue at Foothill, Azusa I had reported there was no curb, apparently the metal curb is removed out of track season and is replaced each year at least when they have meets. Entrance to the track is over a bridge from the parking lot. Not only a full discus and hammer cage, but a separate cage for Weight Throw. Tartan APS


Bryan Clay GS, Innocent Egbunike B East 8 84.5m Aerial Photo 625 ft. Citrus College Yes metal Adjustable Inside

Barranca north of Alosta, Glendora Built into an artificial dirt bowl that holds the steep stands and fills the east end of the stadium. Finish line offset 10m. Backstretch marked for sprints and hurdles in reverse. ! They have high fences and/or razor wire around most of this track--quite dangerous Stadium website link with photos. Separate discus and Hammer Cages. Steeplechase finishes on backstretch. 2 companies claim this as a reference. Zaino/SRI East 9 100m Aerial Photo 625 ft. Bell Gardens

Bell Gardens High School 2005 No No

Jaboneria St. where it ends at Watcher St. Finish line offset 10m. Lane 9 is very close to the fencing. Fake Grass infield. Note the long straightaways and tight turns. East 9 108m Aerial photo

Baldwin Park

Baldwin Park High School Ron Brown G

Bassett High School


Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills High School 1999 No No

Carson

California State University, Dominguez Hills (Home Depot Center) May 2003 Yes metal Adjustable, inside

Perimeter Rd. north of University Drive The new Olympic Training Facility. Dual start/finish lines though south seems to be the primary the first international invitational meet used the north. Relays and Steeplechase finish south. !Security is high right now, and gates are still locked. Mondo North/South 9 82m Aerial Photo Cerritos/Norwalk

Cerritos College Redone 2006 Yes Adjustable Inside

Studebaker entrance at Falcon Way, south of Alondra or East entrance on Alondra Blue. Cerritos College technically is in Norwalk. An AW track has been here since the 1970's, was resurfaced in the mid-90's) 9L Frequent host of many meets including the annual CIF State meet, the National Championships and the most succesful meet I've ever hosted. ! Campus rent-a-cops don't like the public on campus, your car will attract their attention. Entirely redone in 2006 with a Fake Grass infield and outside the oval too. Nothing horticultural in the stadium. Mondo North 9 94m Aerial Photo 70 ft. Gahr High School 1995 No No

Artesia and Studebaker Finish line offset 10m. No fudge room here, the edge of the surface ends at the lane line of lane 9, the exposed subsurface has a lip in some places. Southwestern Seal Flex South 9 92m Aerial Photo 50 ft. Liberty Park 2004 No No

Studebaker Road, South of South St. A short track in a public park. North 4 m Aerial Photo Claremont see Pomona

Compton

Centennial High School 2002 No No

El Segundo and Central ! High spiked fencing makes it difficult to get into. Inner curb raises the track. This is another imperial track built in the new millenium. Since we "officially" no longer conduct meets in imperial distances, building this as an imperial track was an expensive act of stupidity. The old 220y straightaway still exists and was paved in the AW installation. The track is in the SW corner of the campus. South, Imperial 9 96m Aerial Photo 65 ft. Compton Community College 2003 Yes metal Adjustable, Inside

Santa Fe and Artesia Beautiful new track with complete facilities for everything. The one visible drawback to this location is their apparent inability to grow grass.


Charles Dumas, Jeanette Bolden, Ken Carpenter South 9 100m Aerial Photo 50 ft. Compton High School No No

Oleander and Cocoa, one block north of Alondra Blue It is nice to take this off the Bottom Ten. They have resurfaced the formerly damaged, repair pocked track. In the process, they removed the formerly legal curb. In order to fit 9 lanes, the lanes are exceptionally narrow. ! High spiked fencing makes it difficult to get into.


Ulis C. Williams North 9 100m Aerial Photo 55 ft. Dominguez High School 2002 No No

Artesia and Hunsaker ! High spiked fencing makes it difficult to get into. Inner curb raises the track. This is another imperial track built in the new millenium. Since we "officially" no longer conduct meets in imperial distances, building this as an imperial track was an expensive act of stupidity just like Centennial above. The remains of the old dirt track continue past the end of the finish chute. South, Imperial 9 101m Aerial Photo 55 ft.

Covina Charter Oak High School


Culver City

Culver City High School January 2001 No No

Sprints/hurdlesalso marked both directions on sprint straight, to finish at the 100m start. Mondo

Northeast	

8 102m Aerial Photo 760 ft. Glendale High School 2006 Yes metal No

Colorado Blvd and Campus Notable for the wide turns. 8 lanes on the sprint straight. Wide apron for horizontal jumps on the west side of the stadium. Around a fake grass infield. A new high school track with a metal curb. Cal Tracks Rekortan S


Frank Wykoff GGG, Dwight Stones BB South 6 79.5m Aerial Photo 580 ft. Glendora listed with Azusa (and Pomona)

Gardena

Serra High School 2001 No No

Marine and Van Ness ! Campus is protected by barb wire fences. The chute is on the opposite side of the track from the common finish, but all straightaway markings conform to the common finish.

North	

8 106m Aerial Photo 45 ft. Hawthorne

Hawthorne High School 2002 No No

Sundale and Broadway near Inglewood and El Segundo An inner curb raises the track. Sprints/Hurdles run on backstretch where the chute is. Finish line offset 10m. Mike Marsh North 8 100m Aerial Photo 70 ft. Inglewood see also Hawthorne, Lawndale and Culver City

Inglewood High School January 2002 No No

Between Inglewood and Cedar, Kelso and Hillcrest Separate location not on the High School Campus. Extra space (like a half a lane) next to the stands on straights and part of the north turn (narrowing to nothing at a concrete box at the center). South 8 102m Aerial Photo 80 ft. Morningside High School November 2001 No No

107th St. and Yukon ! New, imposing spike fences protect the track in this notorious neighborhood--the school grounds are not protected in the same manner. East 8 100m Aerial Photo 75 ft. La Canada/Flintridge

The following two tracks are within a couple hundred yards of each other.

La Canada High School 2003 No No

Foothill Blvd. and Oak Grove Dr. Surrounding a fake grass infield, finish line offset 10m. Sprints and hurdles marked to run reverse on home stretch out of the chute. This is the southernmost of the two tracks South 9 100m Aerial Photo 1120 ft. St. Francis High School 2004 No No

Foothill Blvd. near Oak Grove Dr. Surrounding a fake grass infield, finish line offset 10m. Non-standard length track fits available space. This is the northern of the two tracks. South 6 100m Aerial Photo 1135 ft. Lakewood

Artesia High School 2008 No No

Del Amo Blvd. andNorwalk Blvd. Surrounding a natural grass infield South 8 97m Aerial Photo La Mirada

Biola University 2004 No No

On campus between Biola Ave. and LaMirada Blvd. north of Rosecrans and south of Imperial This now takes the award for the stupidest facility built yet. First, it is not the right distance and is thus not a suitable competition facility. But considering what was already done to make this facility work, the minimal extra effort to make this into a suitable competition venue should have been completed. Frankly, it doesn't feel flat either. Worse yet, most (but not all) track markings are imperial. The 110H are marked, but the last 10m do not exist. The 440 hurdles are apparently marked relative to the start line, but the 4x100 appears to be marked relative to the finish line with no marked start line. Turns are broken-back, multi-radius. This is frequently lit at night and gets heavy walker/jogger usage and is already showing wear. South Non-Standard 3 91.5m Aerial Photo La Mirada High School Nov. 2004 No Yes, inside

Foster Road east of Adelta This is the is the first high school I have seen recently built with a steeplechase water jump--probably because Biola did not construct a regulation facility around the corner. There is a huge, unmarked chute (high jump pad) beyond the finish line--I estimate 198 meters of straightaway. Hurdles marked both directions from different start lines on home stretch. West 8 85m Aerial Photo Lancaster

Antellope Valley College Resurf. 1999 No Yes, inside grass

30th Street W and K Street--on west side of campus There is a curb here, covered in AW surface material, but it never reaches a height that would make it legal. A curious thing about both tracks in Lancaster. Both have similar markings and both are wrong. Click picture to see details. One probably duplicated the other. South, Imperial 8 102m Aerial Photo Quartz Hill High School Yes No

60th Street W and L Street--on east side of school Actually has a concrete curb that is legal or close to it in most places. Has lots of patch marks from repairs. This also markings that are wrong. Click picture to see details. Black South, Imperial 9 102m Aerial Photo La Puente

La Puente High School 2006 No No

Glendora Ave. south of Temple Ave. Enter school grounds from Hacienda Blvd. Surrounding a fake grass infield. Long chutes make for almost 180m of straightaway. Pull up and paralell bars built into surface next to finish chute. Cal Track Rekortan S East 8 100m Aerial Photo 325 ft. La Verne see also Pomona

Bonita High School, La Verne Sports Park 1999 No No

D St. and Outward Way--West of N. White Ave. Looks old, though reported to be resurfaced in 1999. Major repair in the west turn, plus some other cut out patches. An inner curb raises the track. There is a 10th lane on the east turn, indicative of a conversion from imperial to metric. Also a chute but no calibrated lines on backstretch. No sign of a discus area. Southwestern Seal Flex East 9 100m Aerial Photo University of La Verne Yes concrete

Adjustable Inside

1st Street and B Street Some repairs have been made and others are needed (marked by spraypaint). Curb may not be a full 5cm everywhere but its close enough. No curb through the entire steeplechase area. Steeplechase finishes on backstretch. ! Has barricades and uses them. Lane 8 seems to be the hurdle storage area. South 8 98m Aerial Photo Lawndale see also Hawthorne, Inglewood and Carson

Lawndale High School 2002 No No

Inglewood and Marine Formerly this location was called Lloyde High School. They then closed High School, turned it into an Adult Education Center and removed the original track. This new track is a different location. The previous turf area here was pockmarked with all sorts of holes and weeds. The new turf is remarkably smooth, natural grass. Lots of construction still going on here. ! Imposing fences guard the campus East 9 100m Aerial Photo 50 ft. Leuzinger High School 2002 No No

Avis and Rosecrans (1 block west of Prarie) Long 109m straights, thus short, tight turns ! Imposing fences guard the campus East 8 109m Aerial Photo 45 ft. Long Beach


Andrea Anderson G (Poly High School), Mike Tully S (Millikan High School), Kate Schmidt BB (Wilson High School)

California State University, Long Beach Resurf. 1999 Yes metal Adjustable H, Inside

Atherton entrance, near The Pyramid I'm told they are now locking this at night, otherwise this is a very friendly place. An AW track here dates at least to the 70's. They have barriers, but I have never seen them in place. Southwestern Eurortan North 8 98m Aerial Photo 15 ft. Long Beach City College Resurf. 2004 Yes concrete Yes, kept in storage

Lew Davis Street and Clark ! Locked behind fences (that are difficult to climb because of the slats in the chain link holes) with nasty "No Trespassing" signs. Stadium management says the public is not welcome here. Steeplechase finishes in opposite direction. Concrete curb. Originaly Southwestern Martin ISS, now Cal Track Rekortan Overlay


Kate Schmidt South 9 91m Aerial Photo 35 ft. Los Angeles--City of

Since Los Angeles is so large, look for the general district notation. Also, many of the small cities listed in Los Angeles County fit in between areas of the monstorous Los Angeles City. LAUSD and LACCD schools are included even though they might not politically be within the city limits of Los Angeles. LAUSD has made a recent habit of assigning generic names to high schools that evolve different names, plus many schools now have added different structures which include renaming. This list tries to stay with the traditional, more abbreviated names.

Note: Many Los Angeles area tracks were created as training facilities before the 1984 Olympics. USC, CSLA, CSUN, Birmingham, SMCC, ELAC, LASW and Rancho Cienega to name a few.


Sherri Howard G, Denean Howard S (Kennedy High School), Danny Everett GB (Fairfax High School), Cornelius Johnson G (Los Angeles High School), Allyson Felix GSS (LA Baptist High School), Quincy Watts GG (Taft High School), Cliff Bourland G (Venice High School) 92nd Street Elementary School 2000 No No f (Track near) 95th and Grape Square 133m with relay zones marked for a 3 lap 4x100 Cal Track Cal Trax IMF East 3 Aerial Photo ! Ahmanson Training Center 2000 No No

83rd and Osage. Westchester/LAX area ! This is the Police Training Academy and not open to the public. I am not sure of the distance of this rectangular track (four straightaways, two shorter than the others), it is definitely shorter than 400m. There are three painted lines but so far I can make no sense of the distance between start/finish lines--I have yet to get a measuring tape out there. There is a notable peak (thus an incline and decline) in the middle of each straight (all four). Lots of additional AW areas surfaced (obviously for police training purposes, not running). Southwestern Eurotan East 4 Aerial Photo 85 ft. Banning High School 2002 No No

Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Normandie--Wilmington/Harbor area Now done with 6 lanes all the way around, 7.5 from the 200 start (including a strange partial lane). Finish line offset 10m. Southwestern


Tonie Campbell South 6 98m Aerial Photo 20 ft. Birmingham High School Resurf. 1989/2006 Yes metal/plast. No Victory and Balboa--Van Nuys/Valley area ! Very friendly to runners until it closes, then it is locked behind multiple tall fences (weekends and after 10 p.m.) Originally built in 1982. ! Has barricades but rarely uses them. Tartan APS East 8 97m Aerial Photo 725 ft. Brentwood School 2002 No No

Sunset Blvd. and Barrington Place--Brentwood Area (hills north of West Los Angeles) There is a dirt warm up lane around the outside, wide enough for two more lanes. Obviously the width was due to economics at this small private school. ! High security at this campus. Full time guard to keep you away and they are serious. Finish offset 8m. South 6 98m Aerial Photo California State University, Los Angeles (CSLA) Resurf. 1991 (Yes) metal Stationary Inside

Southwest corner of the campus near 10/710 interchange--East L.A. area They apparently remove the curb outside of the track season. The stadium recently underwent some renovation though the track was not affected.. Steeplechase finishes in the opposite direction. Southwestern Rekortan North 8 98m Aerial Photo 480 ft. California State University, Northridge (CSUN) Resurf. 1995 Yes metal Adjustable, Outside South of Lassen, Lindley and Halsted--Northridge/Valley area I have a photo layout of this track as I explain how a track is marked. See the whole article. Previously claimed by Southwestern Martin ISS Repairs by Zaino Current surfacing by Tartan APS


Valerie Brisco-Hooks GGGS, Alice Brown GGS South 9 100m Aerial Photo 910 ft. Chaminade High School 1998 No No Chaminade Ave. off Strathmore--West Hills/Valley area 373.4m makes for some strange calibrated start lines scattered along the home stretch. The lane lines are blue here to match school colors. Southwestern Eurotan East non-standard 6 81m Aerial Photo 840 ft. Crenshaw High School 2008 No No

50th St. and 8th Avenue--Crenshaw District 

Surrounding a fake grass infield


Johnny Gray South m Aerial Photo East Los Angeles College (ELAC) 1982 redone2003 (Yes) Adjustable Inside

Caesar Chavez Blvd./East L.A. area The previously criticized, badly damaged track here has been removed and replaced with a beautiful new track with fake grass infield. I finally found they do have a curb. It is nicely stored on top of a stack of storage containers down the tunnel. Mondo West

8 99m Aerial Photo 300 ft. Fairburn Elementary School 2000 No No

Rochester & Westholme, north of Ohio Westwood area near Beverly Hills about 12.5 laps to a mile, triangular shape with a playground in the middle. Four narrow lanes and tight turns, I can't make sense of the calibrated start lines. Cal Track Cal Trax IMF East 4 Aerial Photo Garfield High School was erroneously reported. When I visited it was still dirt

Granada Hills High School 2006 No No

Zelzah Ave. and Hiawatha Street, 1 block north of Devonshire--Granada Hills/Valley area, just north of CSUN The first fake grass infield in the L.A. School District. This was paid for by a huge donation from Alum/NFL Great John Elway whose name is on the stadium. ! Locked behind multiple tall fences with signs that warn of video surveilance. West 8 97m Aerial Photo 1000 ft. Harvard-Westlake High School 2004 No No Coldwater Canyon S. of Ventura Blvd. Studio City/Valley area This has been redone completely, with a new track and a new fake grass infield. Gone are the goofy partial lanes and the sinkholes. No start chute, 110m hurdles finish on a different finish line in the finish chute. North 6 98m Aerial Photo 690 ft. Huntington Park High School 2009 No No

East Slauson Avenue and Miles Avenue-- Technically in Huntington Park but part of LAUSD Long straightaways. A ninth lane on sprint straight and most of the back stretch, but not on the turns. Surrounding a fake grass infield. East 8 106m Aerial Photo Jefferson High School 2009 No No

Hooper Avenue at Martin Luther King Blvd--South of Central L.A.. Wide turns surrounding a natural grass infield


Mal Whitfield GGGSB, Charles Dumas G South 8 55m Aerial Photo Jordan High School 2009 No No

103rd Street west of Alameda Street--Watts. Surrounding a natural grass infield


Kevin Young G, Florence Griffith-Joyner GGGSS East 8 100m Aerial Photo Robert F. Kennedy High School 2010 No No

S. Catalina Street and 8th Street--Koreatown 2 blocks south of Wilshire Blvd. This was the Ambassador Hotel, converted to a high school. The track is square, non-standard with no calibration lines except for the finish line. Some extra surface around edged. Built on top of a parking garage, surrounding a fake grass field with a backstop in each corner, next to concrete basketball courts. !High Security fencing. West 4 Aerial Photo L.A. Harbor College 2006 No No

Lagoon Dr. just west of Figueroa Place which paralells the 110 south of PCH Harbor/Lomita area Out of stupidity came another track. There was a dirt track here that was ruined by their need to expand an adjacent soccer field, chopping off the end of the track. That lasted a few years. Now a proper track has been constructed here. !Fine mesh fencing and security patrols make this very unfriendly. East

8 85m Aerial Photo 15 ft. L.A. Memorial Coliseum


Yes Yes

Coliseum Drive and Menlo Avenue, just north of Martin Luther King Blvd. between Vermont and Hoover (south of Exposition) Home of the 1932 and 1984 Olympics, then removed to make more space for the Raiders football games. The Raiders then vacated the stadium leaving the stadium without its historic track. /font> East 8 m Aerial Photo L.A. Police Academy

Imperial and Western--Athens/South Central area near Inglewood the previous, badly abused Mondo track was replace with a new Mondo track and ! High Security fencing. Patrols also watch the track regularly. Even the track team has difficulty using the facility. Mondo South 8 94m Aerial Photo 160 ft. L.A. Valley College 2006 No?* Adjustable Inside

Hatteras and Coldwater Canyon, north of Burbank Blvd.--Valley Village area Striped. This is to become the premiere track in Southern California. 10 lanes of alternating stripes (2 lanes wide) surrounding a fake grass infield. West finish, but curiously the wind direction in this area of the valley usually goes that way. Most field events except vertical jumps are outside the oval. I haven't found javelin facilities yet, discus and hammer are on a small field with only about 180 feet to the fences. No curb installed (yet?) !!This track has some of the most intense, prison like, high, angled fencing protecting it. They look like they will protect it from public usage at all costs. Mondo West 10 84m Aerial Photo 665 ft. Locke High School 2002 No No

107th and San Pedro--Watts/South Central area Black with blue lane lines. 10m offset finish line ! they have been extremely creative in making their fences inaccessable. There are no stadium lights here--they don't plan on holding any events at night.

m Aerial Photo Occidental College 1983 (Yes) metal Adjustable Inside

Campus Rd. and Westdale--Eagle Rock area near Glendale and Pasadena Extra wide turns and short straightaways. It has been resurfaced since its original installation. After track season, the curb and steeplechase are kept in storage. ! Instead of barricades, they apparently place hurdles and steeplechase barriers on the track to force runners to the outer lanes. Security patrols frequently for unauthorized usage outsides of normal hours. Here's the school's website. North 8 66m Aerial Photo 550 ft. Overland Avenue Elementary School

No No

Putney Road, south of Manning Avenue and Ashby Street, just east of Overland Avenue An undersized 3-lane elementary school track. I estimate it at 110 meters with tight turns. South 3 m Aerial Photo Narbonne High School 2007 No No

Temescal Canyon Road and Bowdoin Street, between Sunset Blvd. and Pacific Coast Highway, Pacific Palisades area just west of Santa Monica

South m Aerial Photo Rancho Cienega Park, Jackie Robinson Stadium Resurf. 1997 No No Rodeo Road east of La Brea--Crenshaw District A rare All Weather track at a public park. Frequently lit at night (lots of soccer in the infield), this is the most used track in Southern California. Southwestern Eurotan North 6 85m Aerial Photo Ribet Academy 2002 No No

San Fernando Rd. at the 2 Freeway, Glassell Park area 330.3m broken back track with the sharpest corners I have seen on a competitive track--the turns add about 2-3 seconds to a 400, in other words not suitable for competition. 12m offset finish line needed (because the sprinters need room to stop). Some marks on the track must be mismarked. Pronounce the name in your best basso profundo and you will know why the team mascot is the Toads. South Non-Standard 5 106m Aerial Photo San Pedro High School 2000 No No

West 17th and Alma--San Pedro Harbor area The new stadium here is a major improvement from the 4 lane square track that used to be here. South 8 Aerial Photo 125 ft.

McClintock entrance from Jefferson Throughout most of the year, the curb is not on the track. Apparently when the school has their own home meets, they put it down but most other outsiders are not so privledged. Finish line offset 10m. With west orientation, sprints are run reverse down the homestretch (from relay zone to relay zone due to the offset). Steeplechase finishes in opposite direction The building of this nice cozy stadium, that seats maybe a few thousand, shows the demise of track and field. Through the 1980's, meets were held in the L.A. Colliseum before crowds in the tens of thousands (I've seen pictures of 50,000 plus watching the USC vs UCLA dual meet). It is not possible to have 50,000 here, but it is not an issue because we don't have the demand to seat that many--even at a major championship meet like the PAC-10 (held here in 2003).

Warner Pines Apartments No No Owensmouth and Erwin (Woodland Hills area) This is a weird one for me to list but remarkable that an apartment complex has a track at all. This is a small square, just over 92y (19 laps to a mile) AW surface (about the size of the tennis court next to it). That is an artificial putting green in the middle of the track. There is a sign posted saying it is 17.5 laps to a mile but I measured and it is shorter than that. This complex is surrounded by two layers of security fencing--it is amazing I got in with the camera and measuring tape.

I previously complained, the lane markers were badly faded apparently washed away because the track is flooded every night by sprinklers. This used to be a 7 lane track. The new track now features two sets of lane lines. 6 green lanes of NCAA width lanes on both straightaways and 8 white lanes of less than high school width lanes all the way around. Backstretch starts up the straightaway and finishes in the (old) chute that includes a portion of the old surface. There are some bad seams where a runner can see and feel the unevenness of the undersurface. While I was there, it reeked of reclaimed water and the sprinklers were running, still flooding the new track and track equipment. ! This poor track once was once labeled "Not for Public Use" I didn't see the sign this time but I still did have to jump the fence (along with six other joggers).

No reason I can see for why the 9th lane couldn't be a competition lane. Almost no spectator seating, no night lighting. A short fence separates the outside edge of the track from a surrounding pedestrian path. The jogging lane was not a completely executed effort to reduce the amount of field turf surface area (which is more expensive than track surface).

La Palma between Brookhurst and Euclid Here's another, I'm sorry to say, another mistake. They kept the original imperial curb in this construction--the old plates remain. The chute curb did not align perfectly with the oval curb, so the inner painted line is indented into the track. Thus the distance of the track is longer than 440 yards. The start lines show and account for these "errors". There is a half of an extra lane most of the way around the track. If they had poured a new curb they could have gotten an extra lane around the track. They also use the track for portable bleachers and fencing around their fake grass soccer field. When I saw it, only one lane (5) was free of obstacles. Shot put is thrown onto the all weather track surface--which could also be a large high jump pad.

The adjacent pole vault runway was a roll out surface and that has not been replaced. The steeplechase is still fixed at 36" and the run up to the steeplechase is notably almost 2 feet higher than the track.
