The City of Lake Forest Celebrates 30th AnniversaryBy Lucy Gonzalez, Senior Risk Manager
On December 4, 2021, the City of Lake Forest celebrated its 30th Anniversary with live entertainment, family activities, a tree lighting ceremony, and more. When forming the city, founders envisioned a town full of families and tight-knit communities. The 30th anniversary festivities certainly reflected this vision! When founded, the City of Lake Forest merged the areas of Foothill Ranch and El Toro and was officially incorporated as Orange County’s 31st city on December 20, 1991.
Today, Lake Forest is known for having small town community charm with the convenience of a large metropolitan city. The past three decades have seen the city grow with new development including the Etnies Skatepark, which is the largest public skatepark in the nation, as well as the Lake Forest Sports Park, which opened to the public in 2014. The city’s crowning achievement came in December 2019 with the completion of the Civic Center’s $80 million build project, which was awarded the Los Angeles American Society of Civil Engineers Architectural Engineering Project of the Year in 2020.
Moving forward, Lake Forest is focused on maintaining its beauty and providing public services to improve the quality of life for residents. Congratulations to Lake Forest for being a great place to live, work, and play for the last 30 years!< Back to Full Issue Print Article
