Half-Acre Park In The Works For Arts District Downtown
The Arts District is on the up-and-up. The growing neighborhood full of restaurants, coffee shops, and bars is going to get a new addition to its family—a lush, half-acre park.
Just imagine, Angelenos might soon get to enjoy a park with mural art, outdoor eating spots, trees, and a playground, outside of all that concrete in the area, according to Downtown News.
The City Bureau of Engineering is working with the Department of Recreation and Parks in the proposed $1.6 million project (funded by Quimby fees) at 5th St. and Hewitt St., close to Urth Caffe. They hope to complete the project by summer 2015. Unfortunately, the proposed designs don't look like they're including a dog run in the picture.
