Los Angeles State Historic Park Revitalization Project
California State Parks officially broke ground on the 32-acre parcel known as the "Cornfield" rail yards at Los Angeles State Historic Park (LASHP) on March 15, 2014. The transformation of this site into a world-class park will connect more Californian's to the State Park System and develop other compatible uses in the heart of the nation's second largest city and in one of the city's most diverse communities. The estimated $18 million construction project will begin in April 2014 using existing Proposition 84 funds. The park will remain closed during the yearlong construction. The project will add a welcome pavilion, additional parking lots, an amphitheater, a promenade for a farmers market, wetland areas, and infrastructure improvements, including permanent restrooms.
