An all-volunteer project to restore a popular recreation area in Hermosa Beach is now offering the community a chance to “leave their mark in Valley Park.”

Last month, Leadership Hermosa Beach announced its annual class project, Valley for All, which was unanimously approved by the Hermosa Beach City Council. The green light from the Council kicked off a number of fundraising efforts by the class, which now includes commemorative bricks to be included as part of the project. 

The limited number of bricks come in 4” x 8” ($160) and 8” x 8” ($250) sizes and will be placed in the project area, which is the lower barbecue area at the park. All proceeds will support the park upgrades, which include installing a new entrance ramp, ground leveling, power washing and maintenance, replacing the barbecue, sink and other upgrades at the eastern or lower barbecue area. Information on ordering a brick is available at .

Working closely with the Hermosa Beach Parks and Recreation Commission, Public Works Commission, and the City’s Planning Department on project plans since the end of 2020, the Leadership Hermosa Beach Class of 2021 is committed to making as many area improvements as possible. 

The Leadership Hermosa Beach class invites the residents, businesses, and nonprofit organizations of Hermosa Beach and the greater South Bay area to support the project by visiting and donating at

A wine & cheese tasting fundraiser is also in the works, with two Hermosa Beach businesses, Cultured Slice and Uncorked, providing gourmet cheese and wine offerings for the event. Details will be posted to the website shortly. 

The anticipated unveiling of Valley for All will take place on June 13, 2021 at Valley Park, with all project donors and sponsors invited to attend.
