The City of Temecula wants to enlighten the public concerning the feeding of duck and other water fowl. Feeding ducks "people food" is detrimental to their livelihood and leads to overpopulation, dietary and nutritional problems, and aggressive behavior. It also contributes to a decline in water quality, degradation of landscape, along with significant cleanup and revegetation costs. Pamphlets are available at this park site which provide more detailed information. Please join us in keeping our parks and wildlife protected. 

Important Information

The City of Temecula is currently collaborating with the Harveston Homeowners Association on approaches to consider restoring public fishing at Harveston Lake.  During the annual budget review and capital improvement process, the City is attempting to identify additional resources for lake improvements and program modifications.

Although this process would not be immediate, the City will evaluate viable fishing options for residents and visitors as discussed at the January 2018 Community Services Commission.  This item will be on the Commission Agenda only after funding is secured as part of the budget process.  Annual Operating Budget decisions are anticipated to be confirmed by June of 2018.
