This project consisted of Civil, Structural and Electrical design for a new park in the Hollywood District of Los Angeles, on a 8,172 square foot lot which had been vacant for over 20 years. There are no other parks in the neighborhood, which has more than 15,000 people. The design for this space includes a playground, fitness equipment, small plaza with decorative paving, trees and benches. The park also contains mosaics created by local residents.
The site is long and narrow and utilizes a retaining wall running much of the site to create a raised planting area. To address safety concerns voiced by nearby residents, the project includes substantial lighting, clear site lines and perimeter fences.
The Trust for Public Land broke ground in December 2014 and completed the park in late Summer 2015, due to a $1.26 million grant from the State of California (Proposition 84). It is the 31st park to open in the “50 Parks Initiative” for the City of Los Angeles.
