A big stretch of land near the Angeles National Golf Club in Sunland has been dedicated as recreational open space.

It occupies nearly 280 acres of the wildlife corridor at the mouth of Big Tujunga Canyon that links the Verdugo Mountains with the Angeles National Forest.

The golf club owned the land and had at one time proposed building homes there. Instead, it will transfer the land to a regional parks agency.

That means the area will be protected from development and preserved as a conservation and recreation area.

The golf club will also pay to create and maintain trails.
