On Saturday, March 23, 2024, a special neighborhood ceremony was hosted by the City of Santa Ana Public Works Agency for the unveiling of the refurbished Pacific Park monument signs. The monument signs commemorate the Pacific Park neighborhood name and are located at two neighborhood entrances: two are at Walnut Street and Cypress Avenue and two are at McFadden Avenue and Cedar Street. Councilmember Benjamin Vazquez, Councilmember Jessie Lopez and Councilmember David Penaloza joined Public Works Agency Executive Director Nabil Saba and other City staff and community members at the ceremony to celebrate the refurbished monuments signs.

The original construction (1983) and refurbishment of the monument signs is extra special for the Pacific Park neighborhood because one of their very own neighbors was involved in both the original construction and refurbishment of the monuments, Mr. Luis Garcia. Mr. Garcia works for the company that originally built the monuments and he is the one that installed the decorative rocks and wrought iron on the refurbished signs.  Another fun fact about Mr. Garcia – he is the father of Hilda Lopez, the current Pacific Park Neighborhood Association president. We also want to recognize Pacific Park neighbor Selica Diaz (previous president of Pacific Park Neighborhood Association) for her dedication to refurbish the signs with the Pacific Park neighborhood name.

We thank the City’s leadership, the Mayor and City Council for supporting the refurbishment of the monument signs. We also thank our City staff for leading the efforts in the approval and installation of the monuments.
