One Arroyo Foundation Receives $200,000 Grant

The One Arroyo Foundation has been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Ayrshire Foundation to support the One Arroyo Trail Critical Linkages Project, officials announced. The grant will enable the foundation to further its mission of revitalizing Pasadena’s historic Arroyo Seco, fostering community health, well-being and environmental sustainability.

The Ayrshire Foundation, known for its commitment to supporting projects that enhance communities and preserve natural resources, has been a champion of philanthropic initiatives since its inception. The foundation has a long history of investing in projects that have a meaningful and lasting impact on communities across the nation.

The One Arroyo Trail Critical Linkages Project aims to address the deterioration of the Arroyo Seco’s trail system by connecting three distinct areas of the Arroyo, improving trail conditions and reopening the historic Mayberry-Parker bridge. With nearly 1,000 acres of urban forest and 22 miles of potential continuous trails, the Arroyo Seco is a valuable resource for the Pasadena community. However, heavy use, erosion and deferred maintenance have led to significant deterioration, making some trails inaccessible and unsafe.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Ayrshire Foundation for their generous support of the One Arroyo Trail Critical Linkages Project,” said Steve Madison, vice mayor of Pasadena. “This grant will allow us to make much-needed improvements to the trail system, enhancing accessibility and safety for all members of the community.”

In addition to improving the trail system within the Arroyo Seco parklands, the project will also improve trail and access connections to the north into the Angeles National Forest and to the south along the Arroyo Seco to the Los Angeles River. Educational opportunities will be incorporated into the project, engaging local schools and providing interpretive improvements at scenic, historic and culturally significant locations.
