The new California Bear project is part of the City’s Arts in Public Places program. The first bear project is the “Heritage Bear,” which was painted by a commissioned artist, and includes old and new photographs of life in the Santa Clarita Valley.
“We are very excited about this new park. It is definitely one of the best new parks in the City and offers a wide range of amenities for our community,” commented Rick Gould, Director of Parks, Recreation and Community Services for the City of Santa Clarita.
The grand opening event on April 16 will mark the official opening day of the park and a special unveiling of the Heritage Bear, which is located next to a centuries-old oak tree located at the park.
The grand opening is free and open to the public, however reservations are required. Please call (661) 255-4939 for more information or to RSVP for the April 16 grand opening.
