We took an unauthorized stroll through the newly expanded West Hollywood Park this weekend--the sun was setting as you can likely tell--and found it quite fetching. The park additions, part of the city's Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Capital Project, added two and a half acres of green space to the existing park. Located next to the new Johnson Favaro-designed library (the Culver City firm also worked on the green space), the park now has a promenade, new trees, and fresh basketball courts. The added space was made possible by moving
the park's pool tennis courts on top of the library's street art-decorated parking garage, removing street parking, and demo-ing the old Edward Fickett library. A ribbon cutting takes place Saturday at 10 am on the park's San Vicente side. Meanwhile, a refurbishment of the city's Plummer Park is proving to be way more complicated.
