La Laguna de San Gabriel was named as one of nine of America’s Coolest Playgrounds.  Located in Vincent Lugo Park, La Laguna is home to 14 concrete play structures crafted by Mexican artist Benjamin Dominguez.  The sand-filled lagoon includes Minnie the whale, Stella the starfish, Ozzie the octopus, and Flipper, Speedy and Peanut, three colorful dolphins.  In 2006, Friends of La Laguna (FoLL) formed to work toward the preservation of the structures.  Since, the playground was nominated to the California Register of Historic Places and was designated as a local landmark for the City of San Gabriel. 

La Laguna de San Gabriel was also recently named one of America's nine coolest playgrounds by Yahoo. To view the blog and list of playgrounds, please go toCoolest Playgrounds. For more information, please contact Rebecca Perez, Director of Parks and Recreation, at 626.308.2875 or
