Dedication of Westwood Gardens Park

West Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) celebrated the dedication of Westwood Gardens Park on Thursday, February 10, 2011. The neighborhood park is located next to the Westwood Library and was designed to provide residents with a beautiful and natural reading area and accommodate activities such as storytelling and outdoor lectures.

Transformed from an old parking lot, Westwood Gardens Park was truly a community effort. The parking lot's transformation was suggested by local community members and Council District 5 and is a reflection of the Citywide Community Needs Assessment that was conducted by RAP from November 2007 through 2009. The community was involved in the design process through Public Outreach Meetings.

The new passive park features benches, decomposed granite paths, landscaping, perimeter fencing and a smart irrigation system. The .29-acre park was constructed by RAP's Planning and Construction Division.

RAP is please to be providing Westwood residents and library visitors with a new pocket park to come together to relax, play and read! Westwood Gardens Park is located at 1264 South Glendon Avenue in Los Angeles 90024. The new park will be open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
