Public Input Sought Saturday On Final Phase Of Reed Park Improvements:

Community members are invited to participate in redesigning the Reed Park lawn by dropping by an interactive open house workshop this Saturday, Jan. 24, from 10 am to noon.

In this final phase of improvements for Reed Park, the 1-acre lawn will be redesigned to better connect with the rest of this active park. Public input is needed to ensure that the northeast section of the park will meet community needs.

Located along Wilshire Blvd between 7th Street and Lincoln Blvd, Reed Park is home to the historic Miles Memorial Playhouse, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, a senior lunch program, and offices for the City’s CREST afterschool program.

The most recent set of improvements completed in 2012 included the addition of a new playground, a new garden adjacent to Miles Playhouse, new landscaping along Wilshire Blvd and 7th Street, and general facility updates.

The lawn located in the northeast corner at Lincoln Blvd and California Ave makes up one fifth of the 5.3-acre park. It is located north of Miles Playhouse, east of the basketball courts, and across the street from St. Monica’s Church. Reed Park first opened in 1892, making it one of Santa Monica’s oldest parks.

Public input for this final phase of improvements kicked off in December with an online park user survey. 

Saturday’s workshop is open to community members of all ages, including children. 

The next workshop will be held in March.
