By demolishing two buildings within existing Plummer Park, the size of this much-loved city park will expand to 5.7 acres, increasing West Hollywood’s public realm and green space system. The redesign will foster a greater sense of community in this culturally diverse neighborhood, create an environmentally sustainable, low maintenance park, and represent one of the City’s three 25th anniversary capital campaign projects. Along with the expansion of Fiesta Hall theater and the incorporation of a new pre-school, the park will be unified into a comprehensive whole with a great lawn for festivals, active play and evening gatherings, an outdoor reading room for quieter gatherings, flexible spaces off of the community center to allow for programming overflow, a children’s play area, and a memorial grove acknowledging the impact the citizenry have had on the history of West Hollywood and the world at large. At the center of the refurbished park will be an open-joint fountain which marks the intersection of the major north/south and east/west axis of the park. The park is located partially above a subterranean parking garage which will serve its community.
