Second Phase of Western Gage Median Park Finally Commences

A long-delayed plan to transform a vacant lot at the intersection of Western and Gage Avenues in South Los Angeles into a park is finally advancing. This is according to a Department of Recreation and Parks staff report.

The Western Gage Community Park project, initially approved in 2011, faced a setback shortly thereafter due to the dissolution of the Community Redevelopment Agency. Despite this, CRA/LA excess bond funds facilitated the completion of one component of the project—a playground and landscaped area at the southeast corner of the intersection, which opened in 2021. Now, the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI), in partnership with the city, has secured funding to complete the park's second and final phase.

A rendering of the new park, situated on a triangular parcel bounded by Western Avenue to the west and two segments of Gage Avenue to the north and south, depicts a landscaped area with trees, pathways, seating, a large plaza, fitness equipment, and transit shelters.

Albert A. Webb Associates is the design firm for the project and LANI is financing the project with a grant exceeding $1 million, according to the staff report.
