John Wayne Park Dedication

  • Date: 05/26/2017 3:00 p.m.
  John Wayne 

On April 25, 2017, the Newport Beach City Council approved renaming a local park in honor of one of Newport Beach’s most renowned residents, John Wayne. The Academy-award-winning movie star was known and appreciated as a “regular guy” around town and fit seamlessly into the community – on land and in the harbor. Newport Beach was home to Mr. Wayne and his family for nearly two decades. The John Wayne Cancer Foundation today supports our lifeguards and, in 2016, expanded its "Block the Blaze" campaign to junior lifeguard programs in eight states.  

What: John Wayne Park Dedication 
Where:  2501 Cliff Drive, Newport Beach, 92663 
When:  Friday, May 26 at 3 p.m. 


May 26 is recognized in Newport Beach as John Wayne Day, which coincides with his birthday.
