Mother’s Day Mermaid Market
On Saturday, May 8 the Community Services Department hosted a “Mother’s Day Mermaid Market” on the Plaza Level of the Brea Civic & Cultural Center. There were 40 vendors in attendance and the Brea Art Gallery displayed their annual Made in California Juried Exhibition, featuring over 100 unique works of art from artists all over the state of California. Included in the price of admission, a complimentary photoshoot opportunity was offered in front of a festive backdrop titled “Who Doesn’t Want to be a Mermaid?” with a gorgeous balloon arch.
Approximately 300 community members attended and enjoyed this hand-curated event. It was an event to remember, especially during these challenging times. Attendees were smiling and happy to be out with the community again. A big thank you to the Community Services, and Public Works Departments, the Print Shop, and Communications & Marketing Divisions for all their great work to make this event a huge success.
Wildcatters Park Football Field Renovation
The Public Works Department recently completed the Wildcatters Park football field renovation. Due to the field having low and worn areas that would hold water and make it uneven, a laser level was used to guide the placement of new soil to fill those areas and create better drainage. The process also included aerating to reduce compaction, overseeding the field for new grass, and top dressing the seed with an organic mixture of fertilizer and mulch which helps establish seed growth. Field closure time was agreed upon by the Community Services Department and is scheduled to re-open the week of June 1. This renovation of the football field will benefit Brea Pop Warner Football and regular park users by keeping the fields safe, appealing, and playable year-round.
