Charles B. Hopper Park is a .625 acre park located in the southwest portion of Lawndale, developed on property previously owned by the California Department of Transportation. The park serves a neighborhood which was formerly absent of park space within walking distance. The park was designed to serve tots, young children, adults and seniors and opened to the public in June 2009.
“These [DVD’s] services have included community based design processes, public outreach meetings, presentations to commissions and council and creative solutions that have addressed many community needs. . . . I sincerely recommend DVD to any agency. . .”
