Imagine a Hollywood with a large park (or any park for that matter). This park would not be part of a new condo development. This park would cover the Hollywood Freeway. Though it is just being contemplated at this stage, government and business leaders want to cover the 101 Freeway from Bronson Avenue to Wilton Place and build a 24 acre park atop it. NIMBY has not shown its ugly head just yet, and residents are generally supportive of the proposal. Caltrans, who owns the land, wants a feasibility study before anything can happen. The project is tentatively being called Hollywood Central Park. If that’s the case, we would like to see a zoo, an ice skating rink, and horse carriage rides.
