Gallup Park Fence Replacement

Gallup Park Fence Replacement Starting Monday, August 8th

This coming Monday we will begin a fence replacement project at Gallup Park. Over the years we have replaced broken or damaged boards to extend the life but it is to the point that many of the posts are rotted at the base. We will be removing the old fence and replacing with new over the course of the next three weeks. The park will remain open during construction but there will be laborers present and demo and construction activity. Pets must be on leash at all times.

Thank you to our contributing sponsor, the BRAD FELDMAN GROUP who were generous with the FREE beer, wine, and Old Fashioned cocktails, as well as the free inflatable guitars for the kiddos.

This Week in Nellie Gail Ranch

From the week ending May 20, 2022

The City of Laguna Hills declared May 6th “Lewis F. Moulton Arrival Day” after the pioneer who traveled to Southern California from Boston MA in 1874. Lewis worked on a ranch, eventually purchased it, and acquired 22,000 acres which make up Nellie Gail Ranch and the cities of Laguna Hills, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods and Lake Forest. Lewis and his wife Nellie Gail worked the ranch, raised two amazing daughters and became major founders and donors of the Laguna College of Art and Design and Chapman University.

Please see the event coverage here: https://moultonmuseum.org/lewis-moulton-arrival-day/

Additionally, we are excited to share the following opportunity to attend the Moulton Museum inaugural exhibit 1874: Into the West. Moulton Museum is currently scheduling tours and seeking volunteers. Banners located on Oso across from Nellie Gail Ranch Monument Park will give you a daily reminder of this opportunity to celebrate your connection to the Moulton family.
