Join us Sunday, Dec. 10, 2023, from 12 to 4 p.m., at 11055 Moreno Ave. in Lakeside for the grand opening of Dianne Jacob Lakeside Equestrian Park. Along with opportunities to tour the park, guests can attend ribbon-cutting and welcome ceremony events, an arena show, and participate in other all-ages activities!
Named for the County Supervisor who supported many park projects during her 28 years in office, Dianne Jacob Lakeside Equestrian Park spans 13.88 acres and was designed to accommodate equestrian and livestock events as well as farmer’s markets, contests and other special occasions. The site features a large covered arena, an open arena, livestock corrals, a concession building with banquet hall, a maintenance building, a volunteer pad, restrooms, a shade pavilion, picnic tables, an open parking lot and both ADA parking and access.
The grand opening will be formatted like an outdoor open house. Attractions and tables will be set up around the property so guests can tour it at their leisure:
This is a free event and all ages are welcome. In case you missed the flyer, you can view it HERE.

Park Operation: Dianne Jacob Lakeside Equestrian Park is near completion and ready to open for public events. The contract to manage the facility and all operations following the grand opening has been awarded to Equine Event Services. DPR staff from nearby El Monte County Park will serve as liaisons between Equine Event Services and the County.
Why such short notice for this event? The holidays are here, and December can be a challenging time to host an event. However, working with the construction team, members of the Lakeside community, business leaders, local dignitaries and our new park operator, project managers were able to reach consensus on a time and date just after the Thanksgiving 2023 holiday. It's a large property with many moving parts, but within 2 weeks they've prepared an event that is designed to be fun, inviting, informational and a nice tribute to park ambasadors.
