La Laguna at Vincent Lugo Park
11am - 2pm
Join us in celebrating La Laguna's 52nd Anniversary! The City of San Gabriel in conjunction with Friends of La Laguna invite you to celebrate the La Laguna Playground with a day of play! The event will take place at Vincent Lugo Park (corner of Ramona and Wells Streets), from 11am - 2pm. There will be an official ceremony commemorating the designation of the La Laguna de San Gabriel playground to the National Register of Historic Places, beginning at 11:15am. There will also be games, food, entertainment and family fun to enjoy!
In 1965, the La Laguna de San Gabriel playground was built on the last undeveloped land of Vincent Lugo Park. Benjamin Dominguez, an artist known for his imaginative concrete structures was the creator of the playground. Familiar creatures such as Ozzie the octopus, Minnie the Whale, Stella the Starfish, and three dolphins - Flipper, Speedy and Peanut - dot the lagoon.
