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.
