Catalina- Wrigley Memorial Part 1

The Wrigley Memorial, completed in 1934, stands high in the hills of Santa Catalina island. On the outskirts of Avalon, the structure is part of the island's botanical gardens. It looks like a massive temple, but in reality is a lookout point that houses a great view of the sky, ocean and hills.

A dedication plaque for William Wrigley Jr. Catalina island is all about William Wrigley Jr. From the Casino building, to the bird park, and of course his memorial.

This is the view from the top of the memorial. The gardens and memorial are fairly isolated from the rest of Avalon.

Several signs provide information about the building.
