Our #swalosangeles studio has just received a Special Community Impact recognition from @urbanlandinstitute for their Ricardo Lara Park project, located in a densely populated and historically park-poor neighborhood immediately adjacent to Interstate 105. Opened in October 2015, it features five activity zones that offer different amenities, including a community garden, a shade pavilion, a dog park, a children’s play area, and an adult fitness area, plus bioswales and basins that treat runoff and act as flood prevention.
