Lost World Bears
These are the Scotts Valley's last two Grizzly Bears! The bears were originally part of the Lost World amusement attraction. When Lost World closed, the bears were donated to the Historical Society. Throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, one of the bears would would be included in the Historical's Society's contingent in the Scotts Valley Days parade. The bears were also involved in a few college pranks!

About 1995, the bears were restored and given some permanent territory beneath the large oak tree at MacDorsa Park.

Pinnacle Pass Gazebo
This gazebo was originally located at the Pinnacle Pass complex. In the early 1980s, it was donated to the City to be a part of the new Civic Center Park. Several boy scouts have completed service projects to improve the structure.

Oak Tree
This beautiful oak tree stands to the rear of the Scott House in MacDorsa Park.

Commemorative Brick Program
For a donation of $35, you can have your name engraved on a commorative brick and placed in a walkway around the Scott House. This money raised from this program contributes to the restoration of the house.
