April Arellano started this petition

63-year-old Gary Arellano was fatally shot and killed on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, while trying to stop a fight at La Alma park. As a result of this tragedy, officials have closed the park until further notice with a possibility of being closed indefinitely. 

This is the last thing Gary would want to happen especially as a result of his death. La Alma Park and Recreation Center is a place he called home for over 40 years. We are asking the community to save our park and actively protect the families that frequent the facility. 

Without the availability of the recreation center and park programs, many of our youth may not have this as an option, therefore, creating a possible pathway to illegal activity. We need to save this center and park, to save families. We need to step up as a community and reclaim this area and make it safe. 

Gary Arellano gave his life to stop violence, please don't let this tragedy continue and his life lost in vain.

Here is the link to the gofund.me page if anyone is interested in contributing to the expenses to the family as a result of this tragic and unforeseen loss.
