Promotoras preparing for the Grand Opening

Opening a brand new CA State Park in the middle of downtown is no easy feat. Since the acquisition of LASHP in 2001, CA State Parks and the surrounding communities have been hard at work (65 public meetings, establishing park advocacy groups…) to make the grand opening a reality for Los Angeles. As we continue to be a park for the community, we’ve established new connections with locals and strengthened our relationship with voices of our people.

Our Promotoras, a community-based park ambassadors group, are just as excited to open this park! Today, Promotoras bagged and labeled seed packets for LA to “grow with us!” Meet our park leaders at the grand opening!

Park in Progress

The park is coming together! Here’s a sneak peek of spring blooms soldiering on despite daily construction and heavy equipment that still surrounds. look closely and you’ll see our Welcome Center hiding behind a vibrant coral tree and one of our new park benches next to a western red bud. The promenade at the park’s southern end looking towards downtown and the new Blossom Plaza is almost complete.

Be a part of the “The Endless Orchard”


Endless Orchard

Please join Fallen Fruit this Saturday, March 19th, at the Los Angeles State Historic Park Viaduct and help create an urban fruit in the community surrounding LASHP. Fallen Fruit is an art collaborative originally conceived in 2004 that began by mapping fruit trees on or over public property in Los Angeles. Since then Austin Young and David Burns have continued this collaborative work and taken the project one step beyond to include the installation of fruit trees in public spaces in cities through out the country. Los Angeles State Historic Park is excited to become a part of this “Endless Orchard” with a trailhead located in our very own citrus grove and pointing the way to our community’s own urban fruit trail. If you own property near LASHP and have room to place a fruit tree in a publicly accessible space, please visit on Saturday to adopt a tree for free! We will be in the Viaduct, underneath the Historic North Broadway Bridge, between 10 am and 2 pm for the adoption and planting, 1799 Baker Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
