Playground Maintenance Scheduled

Gallup Park, Moulton Park and Dapple Gray Park playground repairs are scheduled to take place this Monday and Tuesday, August 30 and August 31, 2021. Repairs range from replacing missing nuts and washers to changing out damaged components like chains, steps, ladders and decks. Portions of each playground will be closed as repairs are made so some areas of the play structures will be temporarily off limits during repairs. The repairs will start around 8 am each day and go through approximately 4 pm.

Hidden Trail Park is not included in the repair schedule as that equipment is scheduled for replacement in the Fall. The October issue of The Pony Express will include information and exhibits showing what is coming!

Moulton Museum Coming Soon (Spring 2022)

Jared Mathis and Scott T. Barnes, great-grandsons of Lewis and Nellie Gail Moulton, founders of the Moulton Ranch, invited our Board of Directors to attend a Bunkhouse BBQ at the Aliso Viejo Ranch this past Wednesday. The event, a celebration of history, heritage and community, was held at the recently opened Aliso Viejo Ranch. Aliso Viejo Ranch located at 100 Park Ave. in Aliso Viejo has an ongoing exhibit of photos, ranch tools, and stagecoach that is well worth the trip for any Nellie Gail Ranch resident who wants to learn more about the heritage of the land this community was founded on.

In his brief remarks to attendees, Jared Mathis indicated the items on display at Aliso Viejo Ranch are just the start of what will be on display at the Moulton Museum scheduled to open in the Spring of 2022. The museum will honor achievement, preserve history, tell stories and highlight the contributions of the working people of Moulton Ranch who may have been overlooked by history.

Please visit the museum website at to view some amazing photos and stories. The real Nellie Gail of Nellie Gail Ranch is well worth knowing!!
