Prospect Park celebrates Golden Jubilee June 2

If you’ve ever walked the trails, taken photos at the overlooks, or picnicked on the grass, you’ll want to come out and celebrate Prospect Park’s 50th anniversary on Saturday, June 2.

The Prospect Park Golden Jubilee, hosted by the city of Redlands and Friends of Prospect Park, will kick off at noon with Mayor Paul Foster presiding over a memorial tree planting at the lower picnic grounds on Cajon Street. The fun continues until 4 p.m., with a scavenger hunt, yoga, art programs, live music, Redlands Theatre Festival rehearsals, and historical vehicle and citrus exhibits. 

From 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., the Kimberly Crest mansion will be open for self-guided tours, with docents on hand to answer questions and provide tidbits of information on the landmark. The gardens will be open from noon to 4 p.m.

The Prospect Park Golden Jubilee is free and open to all. For more information, contact the Redlands Community Center at 909-798-7572 or email
