L.A. State Historic Park Plan Images
January 8, 2009 § 1 Comment
This blog is a follow-up to a previous post about the new plans for Los Angeles State Historic Park, affectionately known as the Cornfields. The images presented at the November 20th public meeting came on-line in mid-December, and I am sharing a few of them with you here. For the full presentation, with plenty of exciting images, see California State Parks’ website. The design team is headed by Hargreaves Associates landscape architects.
The existing park at the site is called the IPU (for Interim Public Use) – a temporary park while the state plans and funds the permanent park, which is not expected to be built until 2011 – and that’s just the date for the planned first phase.
The images I found most dramatic are the following proposed transformation of the area between the park and the river. To complete this will require some additional property, so don’t look for it to happen in phase one.
(My apologies that some of these images, despite my high-tech prowess, have been somewhat cropped and distorted. Please see them in their full glorious proportions and detail at State Parks website.)
