We are proud to announce the completion of two new parklets in Downtown Los Angeles as a part of the parklets initiative of the DLANC Complete Streets Working Group, which received City Council support as a pilot project in Fall 2012.
Working closely with Councilmembers Huizar and Perry, the City of Los Angeles Departments of Transportation and City Planning, UCLA, and the Historic Downtown BID, DLANC convened grassroots volunteers and community members to work with an array of talented design professionals, all on a pro-bono basis. The urban parks, which will occupy the length of two metered parking spaces, will both be located on Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles, and create more space for sidewalk amenities while encouraging a more vibrant street life.
Help us celebrate the parklets’ opening during the Downtown Art Walk on February 14, 2013 from 4-5pm, with a reception following the event at The Falls (626 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014).
Date: February 14, 2013
Time: 4-5pm - parklet opening; 5-7pm - reception at The Falls
Location: Spring Street in DTLA, between 6th and 7th (across LA Cafe and Syrup Desserts)
Hope to see you there!
