Thant's not particularly helpful. Do you have more information about this place? Is it a club field, or currently used by full scales?

I have not flown there yet. Large triangle shaped parcel in between Skypark (dogpark) mt hermon road, a self storage place and a propane vendor.

Probably not the best place for large models. It should be perfect for small /medium models, but no gas. There is a nice "runway", a pretty smooth old asphault road.

The lhs recommended this site, I guess others are flying there????

The runway is good. I fly at highlands, but I fly quads so a lot smaller

County Parks have put up signs saying that "NO MOTORIZED MODEL AIRCRAFT ALLOWED" but the ordinance does not exist.

Flying model aircraft is a crime but packing a bowl is not? This is the world we live in. Screw them, fly your airplanes all you want, they will be too stoned to do anything about it anyway.
