BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF LAGUNA BEACH SKATE PARK RIBBON CUTTING
The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach celebrated its new skate ramps with a ribbon cutting on the morning of Thursday, July 13th.
The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach celebrated its new skate ramps with a ribbon cutting on Thursday morning. The skate ramps, generously donated by the Jaffe Family Foundation, provide a variety of space for youth to practice various tricks on skateboards and scooters.
The ceremony was attended by city officials Bob Whalen, Mayor of Laguna Beach and Mike Munzing, Mayor Pro Tem of Aliso Viejo, as well as donors who have supported the ongoing playground renovations, including Karen Jaffe. Roger Hickey, owner of Fresh Park, was also in attendance.
The playground renovations will include a new play structure, basketball court, outdoor learning laboratory and other upgraded equipment. The skate ramps mark a milestone in the playground plans, which have been further funded by a $400,000 grant from the California State Parks & Recreation department.
The Boys & Girls Club thanks the Jaffe Family Foundation for their contribution, with impacts the lives of young people in Laguna Beach and surrounding communities. The new skate ramps provide an opportunity for young people to learn, play and, most importantly, have fun.
Directly following the ribbon cutting, a session of the summer skate camp began, allowing youth to test the new skate ramps.
