Park 101 is a visionary urban park that would be built in Downtown Los Angeles by “capping” a portion of the 101 Freeway. The proposed park will stretch a half-mile long, from N. Alameda Street (on the east) to N. Grand Avenue (on the west). It will provide an iconic public space in Downtown that will directly link key areas of the community, which currently are largely disconnected. Park 101 will improve the quality of life in the area by offering a large public space potentially with free programming to the public. It will enable better access for pedestrians and bicyclists in the heart and cultural hub of the City. It will also create key connections in the community by enhancing transit linkages, and providing direct access to central destinations and local businesses.
