The Summit at Palisades Highlands Hosted Communitywide Block Party
By SARAH SHMERLING | Editor-in-Chief
One beloved Palisades tradition that was put on pause in 2020 due to COVID-19 was fall-time block parties. While some will remain paused in 2021, The Summit at Palisades Highlands hosted a communitywide celebration on Sunday, September 12.
“This past Sunday, the Summit Recreation Committee hosted a member-only Block Party at The Summit Club that had 370-plus residents gather together, meet the neighbors and celebrate the end of summer,” according to Property Manager Rebecca Wade. “All you could hear members saying is, ‘This is amazing, thank you, we just love it here.’”
Those who attended the party dined on food supplied by an In-N-Out burger truck and ice cream, while tossing horseshoes alongside a fire truck with a captain and crew present from Los Angeles Fire Department Station 23.
“Kids were having their faces painted, and a DJ had everyone from 18 months to 80 years-plus laughing and playing games,” Wade shared. “Sunday was a very special day for our HOA community, and I know Kim Lang, who spearheaded this event, is already hard at work with the Recreation Committee starting to plan our next get-together.”
Wade explained that over the course of the past year, some of the parents within the community got together and formed the Recreation Committee, with Lang at the helm. Lang is helping organize group activities for adults and children, including after-school tennis and fitness, pickleball with a U.S. senior pickleball tour pro, Live Ball, group Pilates, and a “Dad’s Night,” complete with whisky and cigars.
“Other homeowners are organizing group hiking with each other, and many residents enjoy hanging out with neighbors at the pool and playground,” Wade shared, adding that the Summit, located atop the Palisades Highlands, has the “best clubhouse you will find on the Westside.”
“It boasts a magnificent pool, with meticulously maintained grounds, that runs like a finely tuned machine,” she shared. “Everyone loves the club staff, who have been caring for the facility for over 10 years.”
Wade added that everyone loves working at the Summit.
“Best of all are the members,” she explained. “They are kind, interesting and welcoming, we all know each other’s names. This is high-quality living in one of the friendliest neighborhoods you will find.”
