Now, the Trebek Open Space bears its owner's name. The Laurel Canyon Land Trust shared on Facebook that the park is "a a gift to future generations who will have to reckon with climate change in the years to come." The space, the trust noted, provides an area for city-goers "who thirst for open space and outdoor activity" and a spot for "native animals such as our local Mountain Lions" to roam.
