The County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation proposes a land acquisition project in the unincorporated community of Walnut Park, located approximately 5 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles and approximately 3 miles from the Los Angeles River. This acquisition will remove a potential nuisance property from the community and expand parkland by acquiring three parcels: APN 6201-028-014, 6201-028-016, and 6201-028-018, totaling an area of approximately 0.5 acres, which are currently vacant but are located within a highly desirable location due to its development potential.
The acquisition of this parcel will result in the creation of a new pocket park in the Walnut Park community which will include water quality infrastructure improvements, native and drought tolerant plants, a walking path, fitness equipment and related improvements throughout the proposed pocket park development consistent with the community feedback received during the Walnut Park Community Plan process completed by County DPR in February 2016.
