Community Meetings Planned to Decide Bluffs Park Future Uses

This overview shows six possible sites where the city is exploring installing a permanent skate park on the southern side of Malibu Bluffs Park (opposite Pacific Coast Highway, seen at top). Site A: 13,500 square feet; Site B: 10,000 square feet; Site C: 8,000 square feet; Site D: 9,000 square feet; Site E: 11,500 square feet; Site F: 13,000 square feet

The City of Malibu has planned a series of three meetings to allow residents to weigh in on future uses for Malibu Bluffs Park.

The general community public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. There is also a youth meeting scheduled for Monday, May 18 for youth and teens to weigh in, and a meeting scheduled earlier on Tuesday for seniors and active adults to share their thoughts.

“The Bluffs Parkland project will add a treasure of accessible, natural, green open space and recreational opportunities for Malibu,” said Mayor John Sibert in a statement released by the City. “We need the input from across Malibu to ensure that we plan for the best possible future uses to meet the community’s needs, so I encourage everyone to attend these outreach events.” 

In addition to the workshops, online surveys will be collected by the City from May 18 through June 19.

Possible design elements include athletic fields, a skatepark, a dog park, a community center, an aquatic facility, walking trails, picnic areas, a playground, on-site parking, maintenance yard and restroom facilities, and all things suggested by Malibu residents, according to the City’s statement.
