Description
This collection consists of material related to the development of the Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley, California from 1966 to 1978. Materials include planning documents, correspondence, reports, photographs, maps, and lease documents.
Background
Mile Square Regional Park is located in Fountain Valley, California. The park was formed from land purchased by the U.S. Navy in 1942 for the Mile Square Naval Outer Landing Field. In March 1967, Orange County entered into a long-term lease with the Navy for the perimeter area of the site, allowing the county to develop the area for a regional park. Military operations in the center airfield area ended in 1974. The park is operated by Orange County Parks.
