Residents are invited to the Opening Ceremony of the George Wolfberg Park at Potrero Canyon from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, December 3.
The ceremony will be held in the new park. Enter at the Palisades Recreation Center, at 851 Alma Real Drive and walk below the tennis courts and baseball fields to access the site.
Parking in the Rec Center parking lot will be limited, so plan accordingly. Trails to the ceremony are either decomposed granite or soil cement. There will be some chairs, or one can sit on the grass. No high heels.
This is a free event and open to the public, but please RSVP to the Eventbrite link, so organizers know how many people to expected. There will be refreshments and cake.
On the invitation response there is a field to fill in how many attendees and under “Company” one can say how a person is affiliated with the park. This information will be used for name tags.
The new park, with entrances located at Frontera Drive, off the northwestern baseball field and off Friends Street will be open from dawn to dusk. The California Coastal Commission’s permit for this park’s riparian restoration and habitat requires passive uses only; therefore, organized sports and other active recreation will not be allowed.
