The future of the Seaside Lagoon itself is murky.

Seaside Lagoon would be a great place to put them, but the future of Seaside Lagoon is unstable due to the Coastal Commision. They basically want the water used in the salt water park, cleaner than how it was taken from the harbor. That means big expensive salt water filters that the city just does not have the budget for.

Also, the city claims Seaside Lagoon has been losing money for the past 10 years or so...Its really no wonder though, as they removed the diving boards and slides, due to potential liability issues and insurance costs. The Lagoon has very little to offer anymore, besides safety in the sense of an enclosed calm waterpark.

Love it. Get another barrel high ball glass at Tony's and stroll over to see the Tiki.

Does anyone know a sincere point of contact to find out the latest status on this? Is there someone in the Redondo Beach City Council or a website page that anyone knows of to keep us posted? That is an awesome piece of work. I would really like to be there for the festivities.

I just stumbled across this thread. Did the big Barney West Tiki ever return to the pier? If not, did it reappear SOMEWHERE else?!?
