Pocket Parks Coming to Los Angeles

Last week, Mayor Villaraigosa presented his vision for a more livable L.A., including the addition of fifty pocket parks.

Using film industry language, the Mayor said his staff had been "scouting locations" around the city to build pocket parks in underserved communities:

"Villaraigosa, who grew up in City Terrace and recalls playing on hills that are now industrial areas, highlighted the dearth of parks in Los Angeles. He noted that his administration has added 650 acres of new ball fields, picnic areas and playgrounds in six years, more than in the previous dozen years."
