City of Lawndale
A community inspired park design process under the leadership of DVD’s park planning professionals resulted in a beautiful new park for Lawndale’s eastside. Design workshops and community meetings were conducted and a final plan was created. The design for the park 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 band members.
