Recreation was the order of the day Thursday as Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich outlined a number of amenities coming to the Santa Clarita Valley during his address at the annual State of the County Luncheon.

“To ensure a high quality of life for our residents, our office is committed to expanding recreational opportunities and access for our parks and trails,” Antonovich said at the event at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.

Those include the addition of an Olympic-sized swimming pool and expansion of the aquatic center at the Castaic Regional Sports Complex.

“That pool will be going in. Construction begins next year,” Antonovich said.

Other projects that are either ongoing or on tap include a recent purchase land near the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area, a popular equestrian, hiking and filming location in Agua Dulce, and expansion of the Castaic Animal Shelter, which is expected to be completed in June 2015, according to Antonovich.

Antonovich also said construction work on libraries — one in Castaic and one in Stevenson Ranch — is expected to begin in June, with the goal of opening in January.

Thursday marked the sixth annual State of the County Luncheon, which is meant to provide an overview of the recent accomplishments, goals and challenges facing Los Angeles County.

The event is hosted by the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce.
