J.J. the Orphaned Baby Gray Whale is in place at Kellogg Park playground in La Jolla Shores, but is currently fenced off from use because a shade structure will be put up to protect the bronze sculpture from the heat, said Kathleen Hasenauer, deputy director for the San Diego Park & Recreation Department.

“The plan is to have a structure installed over the sculpture because it tends to get hot in the sun and we don’t want anybody touching a hot surface,” she said.

Shoreline Park Director Dan Daneri said Friends of La Jolla Shores is in charge of providing a new shade structure for the sculpture. It is likely to take about three weeks to get it done.
