West Hollywood Park

Concepts for the second phase of the development of West Hollywood Park were presented to a committee composed of City Council members, local residents and city officials on Monday. The finalists presenting the concepts were Frederick Fisher and Partners Architects, LPA Inc. and Langdon Wilson International, one of whom the city will choose for the development project. Their actual presentations are available online, with Frederick Fisher and Partners here, LPA Inc. here and Langdon Wilson International here.

The city adopted a master plan for the park in 2004 that called for removing of facilities from the heart of the park to make way for uninterrupted open space with grass and trees. The existing auditorium, including park office, restrooms and skyroom; the swimming pool and support building; the “tiny tot” building and adjacent restroom building are to be demolished. New and expanded recreational and community facilities and parking will be created on a consolidated building site at the south end of the park. That will include development of a new aquatic/pool facility, a new recreation and community center with gymnasium and park support facilities, children’s playground areas and a “tot lot” where children can play.
