Marleene Breene

Special studies on the Olmsted firm, both at Parsons and through symposia by the National Association of Olmsted Parks, instilled a deeper insight into the history of our community and sparked inspiration for the future.

Marlene is currently a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the Mediterranean Garden Society, the California Native Plant Society, and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy.  Extensive volunteer efforts past and present include board member for the Lunada Bay Homeowners Association, steering committee for Beautify Lunada Bay, Committee Chairperson for PTA, and docent activities for the Palos Verdes Art Center and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy.

Seeking good schools and the best climate in Los Angeles, Marlene and her husband Patrick first arrived in Lunada Bay with 2 preschoolers in tow and a ‘dream fixer’ property. After many busy years, the 3 daughters are grown, Patrick is now retired and the house needs another ’fix’. Everything circles back.

Marlene continues to enjoy working in our extraordinary community and is enthusiastic about contributing to the Palos Verdes legacy.
