The park is named for Gale Webb, a long time Menifee resident who inspires and encourages youth through her nonprofit organization, Kids-R-#1. Gale has overcome tremendous adversities with poise and persistence. Following a parachute accident, doctors told her that she would never walk again. Gale proved them wrong and has gone on to make a grand impact in the action sports industry from BMX to Motorcross and has been a mentor for kids of all ages.

“Over the last 40 years, Kids-R-#1 has reached millions of kids with a unique combination of positive messaging and action sports demonstrations,” said Webb. “I am honored that the City of Menifee is naming this new action sports park after me and my organization.”

Sponsors of the grand opening event will include Vans, Former BMX Pro Eddie Fiola, Cahuilla Creek MX Park, Rad Designs 1986, Langston Motorsports, Asterisk, FOX, Imagine It Graphics, Stasi Cycles, Troy Lee Designs, and PowerFlex.
