South Victoria Avenue Park has transformed a vacant nuisance property into a vibrant playground and gathering space for the children and families of Hyde Park, Los Angeles. The park provides much needed green space to over 10,000 people who live within a 10-minute walk.

The new 0.26-acre pocket park includes community-selected recreation features including a large play structure, net climber, group swing, play area for small children, and custom basketball wall. The park also features outdoor fitness equipment, an entry plaza, picnic tables, plenty of seating boulders, and a mosaic stream.

The Trust for Public Land began working with the community to design this park in 2011, and we were so excited to celebrate its grand opening with residents and partners on September 7, 2019.

The Trust for Public Land would like to thank our partners and generous supporters: Council member Marqueece Harris-Dawson, City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, Urban Peace Institute, H.E.L.P.E.R. Foundation, California State Parks Statewide Park Program, Kaiser Permanente, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, and The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
