Rose Arbor Rising In Lacy Park

When it is completed this summer, a new rose arbor will grace Lacy Park for the first time since 2015, when age and dry rot made its predecessor a safety hazard and caused it to be dismantled altogether.
Socially distanced construction work continues on the new arbor, which will cost around $650,000 when completed. Because Lacy Park sits over an active earthquake fault, the structure was subject to new building codes enacted in 2019. The city will pay approximately $450,000 of the bill with an anonymous community member pitching in a sizeable amount of the tab. Other funds have been contributed by the San Marino Motor Classic through San Marino Rotary Charities.
