Welcome to the King Gillette Ranch Planning
Project, a coordinated effort undertaken by the California
State Parks, the Mountains
Recreation and Conservation Authority, the National
Park Service and the Santa
Monica Mountains Conservancy. The website is intended
to help you learn more about King Gillette Ranch and the process
being used to plan its future. Additionally, you can find
here a quick means by which to retrieve current information
and documents used in the planning process. Finally, this
site also provides an electronic mail drop for sharing comments
so that you, too, can participate in the planning effort.
About the Project
The King Gillette Ranch Property is a key parkland property located at
the intersection of Mulholland Highway and Las Virgenes/Malibu Canyon Road,
the very heart of the Santa
Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
Since 1926, when razor-blade baron King Gillette purchased the property,
the site has had a number of owners and different names. A unique collaboration
of park agencies and interests acquired this 588-acre tract in the spring of 2005.
King Gillette Ranch has been open as a public park since June 2007.
The park agencies of the Santa Monica Mountains
are committed to more sustainable future through programs
and policies that support more effective use of our planetís limited resources. To conserve paper and energy, we urge you to make full use of this site as an alternative to printed documents sent via the mail. Doing so will also save your parks thousands of dollars, better invested in improved services and resource protection.
