In September 1966, work was started on the improvement of El Dorado East Area II. On February 6, 1971, this area was opened to the public. At this time, the two lakes, which occupy 7.6 acres of this section, were opened for fishing to youngsters 16 years of age or under. In July 1974 Area III of El Dorado Park was opened to the public.
In 1975, five miles of bicycle trails were added in El Dorado Regional Park areas II and III. This trail was dedicated to Mrs. Billie Howe Boswell, a popular Dean of Women and physical education instructor at Long Beach Community College who was killed by an automobile while bicycling near the park.
Area II is improved with an archery range, which was the site of the 1984 Olympic competition. It contains overnight camping facilities, a lake with paddleboats, group picnic areas and bicycle and walking trails. Area III offers group picnic areas, two lakes, a model train ride and bicycling and walking trails. The park had 1,000 trees planted with funds from the Los Angeles County Safe neighborhood Parks Bond Act of 1996.
