Los Angeles’ Pershing Square to Receive a Face-lift

This recent story outlines the challenges facing neglected Pershing Square in Los Angeles. With the building of a new, 70-story retail and apartment complex beside the park, attention has been turned to improving the space for the thousands of new residents the Park Fifth building will bring. Stephanie Landregan, ASLA, gives her opinion on the current park as “bare, stark and empty” and calls for the new park to be a world-class garden to be tended by horticulturists. Pershing Park was created in 1866 to serve as the city’s central park.
