Our New Park

We have a new park in Los Angeles. It's called Los Angeles State Historic Park. It's located just north of Chinatown in the old Taylor Yard, formerly known as The Cornfields. On Memorial Day, Larry and I took a field trip to visit the new park.

The park is long and narrow, running alongside the train tracks. In fact, at the south end of the park, you'll find the Chinatown Station of the Gold Line...very convenient. 
It was a warm day and the trees are still new, so there is little shade in the park, except under the footbridge.
The sight-lines toward our downtown skyline are glorious. This park is perfect for big, public events. There is tons of space for a stage, seating, booths and more. 


Not sure what the circular "jousting" area is for? The Metro train runs next to the Park


There are many paths and roads in and around the park, perfect for jogging, walking and strolling

There are two permanent buildings with restroom facilities and meeting rooms. The landscaping looks to be somewhat drought tolerant. The buildings are vaguely Asian in design.
All in all, once the trees grow, it should be a lovely park.

Maybe the circular "jousting" ring is actually a saucer landing area. You just want to be prepared for any eventuality.
