Los Angeles State Historic Park has been closed for the last three years, but after a major renovation to the tune of $20 million, the Chinatown park will reopen on Earth Day, April 22.
Opened in 2006 and also known as Cornfield Park, the enlarged and revamped space now totals now totals 34 acres, with new features that include two acres of wetlands, a Welcome Center, a Blossom Plaza, a large promenade, room for farmers’ markets, a meadow, a paved parking lot and a pedestrian bridge perfect for taking in the views.
The April 22 reopening will be a celebration featuring music, performances, family-friendly activities and food trucks. Check out East L.A. band Quetzal, local singer MILCK (famed for her musical performance at the Washington DC Women’s March), global bass from Subsuelo and a Shaolin Monks presentation.
The reopening festivities begin at 10 a.m.
As parking is limited, we recommend arriving by train — the park is easily to get to from the Chinatown Gold Line Station — or by bike.
