New Kiosks & Community Programs
Community Cares Kiosk
With such an iconic seaside location, Pacific City naturally takes a special interest in marine life. Pacific City donated the use of a kiosk to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, an organization with a 50-year history of rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing sick and injured marine mammals. The organization is well known for the inspirational ways in which the organization encourages ocean stewardship through research, education, and collaboration. Nearly 25% of the group's rescues come from the Huntington area. Volunteers will operate the kiosk, which is located in front of Lululemon, each weekend throughout the summer, and all gift shop purchases will directly benefit the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
Earlier this year, Pacific City transformed a kiosk into a mini library, part of the Little Free Library program for children. Local artist Melissa Murphy of Melissa Murals painted the kiosk with smiling dolphins in soft pastel ocean hues. Located on Level 1 of the shopping center, the new Reading Reef library is open each Monday through Friday from 11 AM to 5 PM.
Surfing Walk of Fame Honor Wall
To honor the many national and international surf champions that have competed in Huntington Beach, Pacific City has partnered with the Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame and Jack's Surfboards to create an Honor Wall on the second level, across from Bluegold. Industry greats like Kelly Slater, who is widely regarded as the greatest professional surfer of all time, and Bruce Brown, a pioneer in the surfing film business, are among those featured. The Surfing Walk of Fame Honor Wall includes all of the surf champions from the organization’s long 28-year history, including 10 “local heroes,” 14 “women of the year,” 14 “surf pioneers,” 19 “surf culture,” and 14 “honor roll” inductees.
