Carlton Way Pocket Park
The Carlton Way Pocket Park will create a new park on a .2-acre lot that has been vacant since the mid-1990s. No other parks or public green space exist within a 1/2 mile radius of this densely populated, underserved neighborhood. The design for this park includes a playground, fitness equipment and small plaza with trees and benches. Outreach and a community based design process for this park were conducted between November 2009 and February 2010. The project is a partnership between The Trust for Public Land and the City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks.
