The most wonderful time

By Shirley Harriman

Lake Los Angeles – Sorensen Park – Winter Wonderland 2018 was a huge success with an estimated 1,700 people enjoying their annual winter festival at their community park.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer was sung by members of the Tiny Tots program with the community singing along with them. Then the Queens turned the lights on the Community Tree to cheers from the happy crowd.

After the Lighting of the Tree everyone went into the gym to enjoy Visit with Santa, games, jumpers, snacks and of course, picking out a toy as a gift.

Every child and their family had a wonderful time creating a memory of 2018 at the Park.

Spotlight LACounty Parks and Recreation Stars! Regina Bradley and Jeff Dorst are a caring individuals who work hard so our families can play. I am lucky to get to see them in work mode creating more great things that are on our horizon. So many good memories are connected to Los Angeles Parks and Recreation and the wonderful staff and Supervisors who have worked hard to bring family recreation to Lake Los Angeles.

Your Community Tree with Lights ON!
