Community Celebrates 100-year Anniversary of Log Cabin in Lake Park

On Saturday, April 20, one of the highlights of the City’s Jubilee Celebration took place in Lake Park as a special event was held honoring the log cabin’s 100th anniversary. The rustic cabin was erected in 1924 by the Lions Club, local Carpenters Union, and Edison Company as a center for scouting in Huntington Beach. It has been in continuous use by Troop 1, Boy Scouts of America ever since.

The celebration in the park was hosted by the City of Huntington Beach, Boy Scout Troop 1, and the Lions Club of Huntington Beach. The day included free tours of the cabin, outdoor scouting displays, Historic Resources Board booth, pancake breakfast and entertainment. Several generations of Troop 1 Scouts attended as well as local elected officials and scouts from neighboring troops.

New ADA Restrooms Under Construction at Central Library, Lower-Level

The existing men’s and women’s restrooms in the lower level of the Central Library are in the process of getting a major makeover!

Built nearly 50 years ago, the restroom tile, finishes, toilets, mirrors, glazing, plumbing fixtures, and ceiling are all getting a much-needed upgrade. The restrooms will be modernized and brought up to American Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for better accessibility. Additionally, both restrooms will be converted to family restrooms that will include baby changing stations. Tile finishes, along with modern plumbing fixtures, glazing, and new toilets will be installed. A new hard lid ceiling system will replace the existing acoustic ceiling tile, and new lighting will be included as well. These systems and finishes were designed to match or resemble the upper-level restrooms, which were renovated in 2019 to meet ADA standards. The approximately $120,000 project began in February and is expected to be completed by late May 2024.
