Scott and Debby

“LA suffers from not having enough third places, something that is not your home or work. Public parks are third places that provide a space to mingle with others you may not encounter otherwise,” Scott, an LA resident of 17 years said. “It’s that opportunity to connect with other LA residents and with parts of the city that aren’t occupied by cars or businesses. It’s just a place to exist. This park is different because it is such an interesting intersection of various parts of LA. It’s downtown but doesn’t feel like downtown. It feels like a modern park that was designed with purpose in comparison to so many parks that are just kind of plopped down without much intention. There is a lot of design here that I really appreciate.”
