Playground Equipment Dedicated at Monrovia's Julian Fisher Park



A whole new set of park playground equipment was dedicated today at Julian Fisher Park, which is a block north of Huntington on California. The park is named after Julian D. Fisher, who moved to Monrovia in 1910. He was the first African-American male to graduate from Monrovia High, was a member of Bethel AME Church and was Monrovia's first African-American police officer, serving here for 30 years. He died in 1976.
