Grand Opening: Hogan Park, Lawndale

Hogan Park, in the City of Lawndale opened September 10th. DVD is proud to have been given the opportunity to partner with the City of Lawndale in creation of this park for its citizens to visit and enjoy. The city decided to close a public street to create space to provide land for this wonderful and unique neighborhood park. The community inspired design includes a variety of amenities for residents to enjoy including play lots and ample areas for people to rest and recreate.


To the north is an open green area and to the east is a space for group picnics that include picnic tables, BBQ units, and shade structures. Play elements in the park include climbing rocks, ropes and a climbing tower. The main playground area includes music themed elements, including concrete benches with a piano key relief pattern and a musical note adorned play surface. The inspiration for the music theme came from a resident, historian and local musician who recounted the story of an old music shop that was a Lawndale landmark and was frequented by the Beach Boys.

Parks Make Life Better

Last month was “Parks Make Life Better” month but here at DVD we like to apply this motto into all the parks that we design and build all the time.

There are a number of ways our cities parks have made lives better and communities richer. Enhanced exercise equipment, fitness areas and running trails in parks encourage physical activity and health in our citizens. New and improved playground areas give kids a reason to get out of house and be more active. Quality picnic areas and shelters are easy hosts for many parties and gatherings. Art installations and displays spolights cultural significance and talent of a city. These are only a few ways parks make life better and enrich a whole community. How has your city’s parks made your life better?
