Boyle Heights weighs in on new park to be built under Sixth Street Bridge

One concept for East Park under the new 6th Street Bridge. The city is soliciting public comments until May 15.


BOYLE HEIGHTS — There are three possible designs for a new park that will be constructed beneath the Sixth Street Bridge replacement and residents are being asked to choose which one they like the best. While all three concepts have differences in layout, park options like a soccer field, arts plaza, and gardens are included across the board.

The first conceptual design is a promenade style which would feature direct, linear space. Photos for the design shows basketball courts, a water play area and is described as “expresses the bridge length.”
