The Twentynine Palms City Council will hold a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, June 24, at 5:30 p.m. on National Park Drive in Twentynine Palms. The ceremony will take place midway down National Park Drive, focusing on the center median across from the Old Schoolhouse Museum.

 

The purpose of the ribbon cutting will be to celebrate completion of the National Park Drive improvement project, which consists of new curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, road surface repaving, and median work. 

 

A highlight of the improvement project is a new sculpture by acclaimed artist Ricardo Breceda of Temecula, which is being installed on the center median. Breceda has created a life-size metal sculpture of a prospector and his burro, a historical piece that honors the gold mining heritage of the 1870s to early 1900s in the Dale and Gold Park mining districts in Twentynine Palms.

 

Breceda, whose giant metal sculptures in Borrego Springs have brought world-wide attention to that desert community, also created the big horn sheep sculptures on the north end of National Park Drive and the ram that adorns the monument sign at the corner of the highway.

 

The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held prior to the regularly scheduled City Council meeting, which is expected to begin at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall, when council members arrive back in Council Chambers from the site.
