City to Host Ribbon Cutting for New Archery Range

| Community | May 16, 2019

Hikers, equestrians and cyclists love to visit Santa Clarita’s picturesque open spaces for a day of fun in nature, and now archers can also do the same thanks to a new archery range in the Haskell Canyon Open Space. The Santa Clarita City Council will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Santa Clarita Archery Range on Thursday, May 23 at 10 a.m. The community is invited to attend the event to celebrate the grand opening.

The Archery Range is located in the northernmost canyon in the Haskell Canyon Open Space, located north of Copper Hill Drive and east of Haskell Canyon Road. To access the archery range, follow the signage along the road off Copper Hill Drive. The path to the archery range is a 1.3 mile dirt road. Closed-toed shoes are recommended. To attend, RSVP to Kathleen Herrera at kherrera@santa-clarita.com or call (661) 255-4939.

The one-acre Santa Clarita Archery Range was developed by the city in partnership with local nonprofit organization Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) Archery. The Haskell Canyon Open Space was chosen as its location because of the amount of space needed for archery practice, keeping archers and trail users alike at a safe distance from practice targets.

The archery range is available and open to the public seven days a week, from dusk till dawn. On select dates and times, the SCV Archery hosts free and low cost introductory classes, including one-on-one coaching and group events. More information on the local nonprofit SCV Archery and their classes can be found on their website at SCVArchery.com.
