Shelton Park Performance Stage

You are enthusiastically invited to help in making this dream come true.

Shelton Park is located at the northeast corner of Bonita and Harvard Avenues
in the heart of the Claremont Village, adjacent to The Claremont Colleges. View map.


This pocket park, which has an old world ambience, is home to many well-planned and impromptu events.
It is also home to one of the city's premiere pieces of public art,
Simple Gifts, a sculpture created by former Claremonter, John Fisher, in 2000-2001.

Our proposal is to add a performance stage which will make Shelton Park even more of an asset
to the community and provide a venue for exciting events in the Village.

Groundbreaking Party will be held in Fall 2014
Dedication wil be in 2015
