The Gualala Arts picnic area, developed and lovingly tended by volunteers, underwent major renovations throughout 2016-17.
Home to the BBQ, pizza oven, stage and picnic tables, this area is key for food service at major events like Art in the Redwoods and the Auto Show.
It is also the site for private events, celebrations and weddings, providing a beautiful venue for guests and an important source of income to help ‘Bridge’ the Arts Center’s funding Gap.
After discussions and planning meetings with the Stone Foundation International, landscape designers, Gualala Arts staff, volunteers and local caterers, a design has been prepared for improvements and beautification. It will solve existing issues like tripping hazards, drainage, increased access and access for all, level ground and site lines to the stage.
The plan creates a magnificent, serpentine stone retaining wall that will be memorable as a work of art in its own right, and new stone paths to be built after grading, leveling, and clearing of old stumps. The existing redwood trees will remain.
Join us in this exciting adventure.
Help us “Bridge the Gap . . . and Beyond.”
We need additional funding and offer many opportunities to support the project which includes naming rights and recognition: Redwood Grove Donor Opportunities.
