September 21, 2013 (Lemon Grove) The City of Lemon Grove and Lemon Grove Historical Society invites the public to a Grand Opening Party on the Main Street Promenade on Friday evening, Sept. 27 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. This hometown event celebrates the completion of the Pioneer Modernism Park at the Main Street Promenade and the welcomes Lemon Grove’s newest neighbors from Citronica One, the brand new colorful and modernistic residential and business structure recently completed near Highway 94 and the Lemon Grove Trolley Station.
“Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” is the name chosen for the Pioneer Modernism Park, as it evokes Lemon Grove’s history. Visitors can view the new wonderful installations at the park, such as the wind spire, tractor slide, mosaics, charming seats, and windmill. Visitors are encouraged to bring the children, friends and colleagues to enjoy dancers, singers, jugglers, and magicians; to play in contests of hula hoop, jump rope, bubble blowing and whistling; and to enjoy free cookies and lemonade, and much more.
This is a chance to see the completed constructions of both Citronica One and Pioneer Modernism Park. Citronica One is a mixed-use development project that will provide affordable housing and 3,650 square feet of retail space, located at the southwest corner of North Avenue and Main Street in Lemon Grove. With a name like “Citronica,” it belongs in Lemon Grove!
There will also be opportunities to meet the folks who run the City of Lemon Grove and its service clubs, school district, youth groups, churches, and more.
