Shelter Island, San Diego

Pacific Rim Park, a program of the Ilan-Lael Foundation, is an international peace effort started by artist James Hubbell more than 30 years ago that has created 7 art-filled parks along with lasting friendships around the Pacific Rim. The parks are dedicated to peaceful understanding and friendship among cultures.

On Sunday November 20th the event will begin at San Diego’s Pearl of the Pacific PRP park to celebrate our PRP family and San Diego’s diverse international community. The Ilan-Lael Foundation is sponsoring a walk along Shelter Island from 10am to 1pm along the beautiful waterfront Shoreline Park. The walk begins at James Hubbell’s elegant Pacific Portal gazebo at the entrance of Shelter Island. Everyone will walk about one mile to Pearl of the Pacific park where there will be food, original artworks on display from around the Pacific,
and a special ceremony honoring the 65th anniversary of the San Diego-Yokohama Sister City Organization.
