A Grand Park Opens in Downtown LA

A new county park known as the Grand Park opened in LA last month. It is a gathering place for city dwellers, and a venue for a major concert, a farmers’ market or a participatory dance recital. The park will have year-round events and will provide much needed green space to the downtown neighborhood.

Sandwiched between City Hall and Disney Hall, the park is the latest attempt to revitalize a neighborhood where the sidewalks once rolled up by nightfall but that now sees a new restaurant or bar opening seemingly every week.”
