We are putting it ALL TOGETHER for a day of Celebrating and Bike Riding!

The official Parks Day, Come Play! starts at 10am with Grand Opening Ceremonies at the new Ishihara Park located at 2909 Exposition Blvd. in Santa Monica. Ishihara Park was named for George Ishihara, a long-time resident of Santa Monica’s Pico Neighborhood and a World War II veteran. The park is designed by the prominent landscape architecture firm Mia Lehrer + Associates who will be conducting group tours at the new park.

Festivities begin at 10:00am at Ishihara Park (we’ll here too!)

Bike ride gathers at 11:00am at Gandara Park and will return to Ishihara Park after stops at Los Amigos and Reed Park Re-Opening Celebrations.

Our ride activities will start at the Dedication Celebrations at Gandara Park (formerly Stewart Street Park) at 11am with the February Ride with the Mayor to Los Amigos Park our 1st stop. After picnic snacks and a visit at the Re-Opening Celebration at Los Amigos Park we’ll head over to the Re-Opening Celebration at Reed Park for more exploring. After we hang out there for a bit we’ll head back to the Grand Opening Celebrations Ishihara Park.
