That beautiful green grass dotted with trees has offered a lush for those wanting to take a break and step off of busy Santa Monica Boulevard or Melrose Avenue. Now it’s largely wrapped with fencing as the second stage of the redevelopment of West Hollywood Park is underway.
It will take about three years to enjoy the new park. But a “fly through” video produced by the City of West Hollywood provides an engaging look at the Aquatic and Recreation Center, which will be the major feature of the eight-acre park.
The four-level, 75,000-square-foot center will have two rooftop pools, one for swimming competitions and training for them and one a recreational pool. It also will have a court with bleacher seating and scoreboards that will accommodate a variety of sports. It will have five community meeting rooms and one conference room. There will be a classroom for the Tiny Tot program, offices for the city’s Parks and Recreation staff and a public access television studio.
Let your imagination fly and take a 3D look at what you’ll be visiting in three years in the video above.
