WESTWOOD GARDENS PARK RE-OPENEDThe Department of Recreation and Parks along with Councilmember Paul Koretz, Fifth District, celebrated the re-opening of Westwood Gardens Park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Located in Westwood next to the Westwood Library and near the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) campus, the site was once a parking lot that was transformed into a neighborhood park serving an estimated 9,306 residents within a one-half mile walking distance. Community outreach led to a park improvement plan to make Westwood Gardens Park more active for nearby residents.

The new park design features include a playground, for youth ages two to five years, outdoor fitness equipment, new game tables, security lighting and a camera, new benches, and drought tolerant plant material. The community-driven project that led to improvements at Westwood Gardens Park has resulted in a beautiful, open green space for the community to actively play or to take a moment to relax and enjoy.

Los Angeles, CA 90024

The re-opening ceremony was attended by: Paul Koretz, Councilmember, Fifth District; Javier Solis, Superintendent, Department of Recreation and Parks Sylvia Patsaouras, Commission President, Board of Recreation and Park Commission Linda Blank, Vice President, Westwood Homeowners Association.
