After nearly two years of construction, Los Angeles State Historic Park is finally starting to look like a park again. Admittedly, our construction updates have been few and far between. Making a compelling photo out of various configurations of dirt and trenching turns out to be difficult.Unfortunately, too, weekly Inspector Field Reports are pretty dry and hard to translate into definitive milestones.
But finally, we have completed buildings, our new Ranger Station and Welcome Pavilion, and actual trees in the ground. We still have a ways to go, but the finish line is in site, and we expect to be open to the public later this year. For now, here’s a sneak peek of what’s happening inside the green fence.
