Moonridge Animal Park's getting a new home

Posted:   05/27/2013

Michel Nolan, Staff Writer

Sun Telegram Newspaper





BIG BEAR LAKE - Here's what's new at the zoo.

The latest development in the Moonridge Animal Park's relocation project committee is an artist's nearly complete 3D scale model of the new wolf enclosure.

"This should be a very nice project," they said. "A Disney artist is working on the project model."

The model unveiling is set for 3 to 4 p.m. May 21 at the Big Bear Parks and Rec office, 41220 Park Ave., Big Bear Lake.

The zoo's new site is a 10.4-acre parcel in the Moonridge area of Big Bear Lake.

"The property was purchased at a cost of $2.1million - a steal in that area. The new site is near utilities and needs minimal grading," they said. "We'll develop 7.5 acres for the zoo, and the rest will be a wildnerness area."

Plans for a beer garden are also in the works.

An environmental report should be completed by August, they said.

"The best-case scenario would be to have a possible grand opening one year after that - August 2013," they said.

The project is in the Initial Study review process.

What makes the Moonridge Animal Park unique is that all zoo inhabitants were rescued.

Of those, 75 percent are returned to the wild, with just 25 percent kept as permanent residents.

The park is home to more than 100 animals - from snakes to bears and bald eagles.

Animals include black bears and grizzlies, wolves, coyotes, mountain lions and bobcats, foxes, raccoons and eagles, docent Pam Brostedt said.

"We are not a zoo," said staff member Margaret Schwab. "We're a rescue organization, and all the animals who need to be here are here."

The current Moonridge Animal Park is open daily year-round - except for Christmas Day.

"I'm really excited about this project," Derry said. "The current park is open, and we invite people to come up and enjoy it now," Schwab said.

For more information, call Moonridge Animal Park at 909-584-1299.

Reach Michel via email, call her at 909-386-3859.

REVIEW- SEPTEMBER 24, 2013
"We have reserved our cabin again - for Thanksgiving. If you want to know why, just look at the review we posted on TripAdvisor after our last stay at beautiful Golden Bear Cottages resort. We have been wanting to get back there for 2 years, and we finally got it in our budget to do so. Can't wait to cook our Thanksgiving feast in our beautiful rustic cabin in the mountains. I have attached our previous review that I saved because we were so happy with our experience at Golden Bear. See everyone soon! ... "Very Impressed" Reviewed November 19, 2011. Our family found this resort cozy and the family staff helpful. Very happy with the cottage we had, it was cozy, very clean and good kitchen equipment. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay there the next time we go back to Big Bear. We stayed in November 2011, and traveled with our family. Golden Bear is a good value. The location and sleep quality is very good. This is the best place to stay with a family in Big Bear'."

Big Bear cabins for rent


Big Bear valley is a four season resort as well as a beautiful place to live all year round.

Editorial by: John Bryant

There are three major highways to enter the valley as well as an airport.

But for this journey we will begin on highway 18 which begins in the City of San Bernardino, California. The 45 minute drive up the mountain is in itself a scenic wonder however when you cross over the dam on our new bridge you will enter an area we call Boulder Bay. Just past the bay you will find historic 5 acre Golden Bear Gottages resort filled with 28 restored cabins of all sizes fron little Jacuzzi studios to large group cabins as large as 5 or 7 bedrooms.

Just a block before Golden Bear Cottages you'll find a brand new park on the lake, on your left, because it also provides ample parking a dock that is often occupied by fishermen and ladies with a great lake view!

Another quarter mile on your left and you will see a sign for Pleasure Point Marina which has as much to do about boat rentals, guided fishing tours and wakeboarding as well as full and part time What To Do In Big Bear fishing and boating!

Big Bear valley is a beautiful four season resort as well as a beautiful place to live all year round.

Another quarter mile on your right up highway 18 and you will find a locals favorite called Azteca Grill with authentic Mexican dishes to die for at very reasonable prices including beer and wine. Say hello to your hosts Arturo and Rosa for us!

And would believe just another quarter mile up the road on your right you will find a long time outdoor fun park called Alpine Slide. With Go carts, Miniature Golf and Bob Sled it operates 12 months of the year and provides fun for Kids of all ages.

Another quarter mile and you have to make a decision. Do you wish to go straight ahead and enter the village with dozens and dozens of shops and visit one of Big Bears most famous photo artist, Tim Wolcott at his world famous Gallery Of The American Landscapes. Or turn left, follow the curve and just on your right you will discover the Bowing Barn with tons of things to do including a bar with a dance floor. And believe it or not just a few feet more and the next barn red building is Big Bears newest entertainment center, the Big Bear Fun Plex with its own lazer-tag court, alpine roller coaster and bumper cars, pool tables, arcade games and did we mention the pizza restaurant inside?

By the way just few blocks more on your right and you will the office for Action Zipline which is a 3 hour excursion high up in the forest with nine zip lines that are sure to open your eyes and give your heart a thrill. Don't miss this "once in a lifetime opportunity"

Now just for a minute let me introduce you to our beautiful forest with over 450 miles of off road vehicle paths as well as an untold number of miles of mountain bike paths and while we're on the subject of bike paths just a quarter of a mile on your right you will find Summit Blvd. entrance to that well known premier ski slope and right on the corner with a huge parking lot is another premier business called Chains Required that not only rents bikes in the summer but skis in the winter. What an ideal location.

By now you know that Big Bear is all about fresh air and recreation with super relaxation!

When you are well rested from the recreating and shopping, let us introduce you to just two more places you will want to know about. Go back down Moonridge road and turn right and drive past the Stater Brothers and Von's shopping centers and about a mile down the road you will find a fun place on your right called Big Bear Snow Play and of course it's only open in the winter but on a very gentle hill that's
just right for small children as well as the adults you might have with you.

And would you believe right across the highway is a giant of a building called The Big Bear Lake Convention Center. This building happens to house the largest Octoberfest celebration in the state of California as well as a dozen major events throughout the year. And would you believe it can hold up to 1500 people? For you Corporate types that are looking for a location that provides a change in atmosphere with a ton of
old-world hospitality the Big Bear Lake convention center is worth a look-see. Transportation from your accomodations the valley is available.

The Big Bear Valley Historical Societies building and exhibit is just a couple more miles out to the east of here housing a museum of gold rush and more mining information and such including the original settlers, the Serrano Indians.

For more about local events and to get additional traveler's information, stop by the office at Golden Bear Cottages near Boulder Bay at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. The friendly office staff will provide you with visitor's maps and local coupons for boat rentals, stores and restaurants. They have a wounderful mountain gift shop there too. You can also call the visitor's information office at 1-800-461-1023.

AT A GLANCE-- GOLDEN BEAR COTTAGES RESORT CABIN RENTALS

WHERE: Big Bear Lake is about a two-hour drive east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino Mountains. From the Inland Empire, there are three routes up the mountain and road construction or other conditions may make one or more routes slower - so it's good to call ahead (909-866-2010) for your lodging and get a suggestion for the best route to use for your trip to Big Bear Lake.

WHAT: Big Bear Lake is a mountain resort that has the advantage of being close to Southern California's population centers. It also has more sunshine than most mountain resorts and visitors can drive to Palm Springs in a little more than an hour if they want a daytrip to a completely different climate.

WHEN: Big Bear Lake is a year-round resort area and is especially popular in winter because so few areas in Southern California offer skiing and snowboarding. The resort area is just as busy in summer as in the winter. Those who visit find a vast array of outdoor activities and excellent weather.

WHY: This is a place for Southern Californians to experience a completely different climate and terrain within a short drive of the Southern California deserts and beach areas. Temperatures average 22 to 25 degrees cooler than the valleys below. Families find the area appealing because of its many recreational opportunities and an excellent selection of lodging from hotels/motels to reasonable family friendly and group cabin rentals. Call 909-866-2010.

HOW: For more information on Big Bear Lake to go www.BigBearLodging.net  or call 909-866-2010. For more information on the CABIN RENTALS, phone 1-800-461-1023  or visit WWW.GOLDENBEARCOTTAGES.COM .
