MALIBU—The City of Malibu is installing a new pre-fabricated bathroom building as part of the Las Flores Creek Restoration and Park Project in eastern Malibu. The work will require an intermittent lane closure of Las Flores Canyon Road. just north of PCH between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 27.

The goal of the Las Flores Creek Park improvement project, which is funded by the California Natural Resources Agency and the City of Malibu, is to restore and renovate the neighborhood pocket park located along Las Flores Creek.

The park has on-site parking, picnic tables, a small playground, benches, and over a 1/3 of a mile of walking trails. It also has over 45 varieties of native plant species and interpretive signage throughout the park with information about the plants, riparian habitat, the creek stabilization project, and the history of the area.

According to the project website, the first phase of the project was completed in 2008 and included the construction of a playground, walking trails, picnic area, as well as work to preserve and naturalize the creek through the planting of over 45 varieties of native plant species.

Phase Two improvements, intended to provide additional park amenities, greater ease of access, and increased safety for park visitors and adjacent neighborhoods, include a prefabricated restroom facility and a bridge connecting the park elements on Las Flores Canyon Road to the existing parking lot on Rambla Pacifica Road.

The bridge is scheduled for installation in March.
