Grand Opening of Brand Park Community Building

Mission Hills - Home to the beautiful and famous Memory Garden and neighbor to the Mission San Fernando Rey de Epsana, Brand Park (a.k.a. Mission Park) has been part of the Recreation and Parks' family since 1921. For over 80 years, Brand Park has been an important part of the Mission Hills community. Residents have used the parkland for many different events. From Birthday parties and family baseball games to Weddings and Quinceanras the historical location has hosted them all. The new Community Building has been built to compliment and enhance the park's existing features and provide a space where many more special memories can be shared.

The Department of Recreation and Parks, Councilmember Richard Alarcon and Mission Hills' residents celebrated the grand opening of the Brand Park Community Building on Thursday, April 15, 2010. The $1.7 million community building will serve residents of Mission Hills by supporting diverse educational and leisure programs.

The one-story building includes a multi-purpose assembly room, an entrance lobby, small office and a serving/warming kitchen. The building will also be used as a rental space for community activities and meetings, as well as special events such as weddings, birthdays and other cultural celebrations.

The project also included improvements to the adjacent courtyard which included enhanced landscaping, a trellis, gazebo and other outdoor amenities. Funding was provided by Propositions 12, 40, K and A, Quimby and Sites and Facilities Funds.

Brand Park Community Building is located at 15174 San Fernando Mission Blvd, Mission Hills 91345. Please call (818) 896-6510 for rental information.
