Efrain Santiago loved to bike around White Bear Lake. So after the beloved Washington Square Bar & Grill bartender passed away in 2019, his friends knew exactly how to honor his memory.
Through a GoFundMe campaign, they collected donations to install a bicycle repair station and bench at Bellaire Beach park in his memory. As of October 10, both repair station and bench are now in place adjacent to the just-completed Lake Links Trail and Saputo Station rest area.
The Lake Links Association expresses huge thanks for the friends of Efrain Santiago and to White Bear Township for providing these wonderful amenities to trail users and others frequenting Bellaire Beach. We encourage everyone to stop by, enjoy the lake breezes, and appreciate the gift of Ef's enduring positive impact in our community.
