Prentice Park in Santa Ana, Orange Co., CA was a gift to the city from my father's mother's brother, Edward Prentice. As I recall, it was developed in the 1940s, or maybe early 1950's. It abutted a large mansion and large orange grove which he owned on E. First Street. The mansion and orange grove are now gone, replaced by, I think, the Saddleback Inn and other developments. --Joe Dewald
