City of Santa Clarita Now Accepting Additional Names for the Youth Grove Memorial

June 1, 2012

The City of Santa Clarita is accepting names for the Youth Grove Memorial in Central Park, which is dedicated to honoring local youth who have died in traffic-related incidents.

The Santa Clarita Youth Grove is a half-acre memorial with 82 pillars, each representing a young life, age 24 and younger, whose life was cut short because of a traffic-related incident. Each pillar bears a plaque with the youth’s name as well as a reminder that the young person lost will always be “Forever 16”, “Forever 18,” or “Forever Young.” 

To nominate a youth’s name to be included in the Annual Evening of Remembrance at Central Park on September 29, applicants must complete a release form, signed by the parent, and submit it by Friday, July 27. The release form is available on the City’s website or by calling Community Services at (661) 250-3708. 

For more information on the Youth Grove, please contact the City’s Human Services Administrator, Janine Prado, at (661) 250-3708 or visit
