park district

Parts of the Danny Thomas Ranch property that is among 123 acres donated by the owners of the San Gorgonio Crossing warehouse project in Cherry Valley.

As the 1.8 million square-foot San Gorgonio Crossing logistics center was being planned, former county supervisor Marion Ashley had advocated an open space buffer between the facility and the community of Cherry Valley.

Irvine-based Shopoff Realty Investments was expected to contribute 35 acres and a hefty $400,000 contribution to the park district to demonstrate that the entity intends to be a good neighbor.

The value of what they would end up giving the park district--and perhaps the region--has a much higher value, and would encompass far more than 35 acres.
