Lexington Park II Ground-breaking

I joined representatives from the Santa Monica Western Residents Group, the Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council, and the Department of Recreation and Parks to break ground on the 18th new park to rise in CD13 since I came to office in 2001. (We started with 13; I vowed to double the number of green spaces in the district, and we're not stopping there.) The park should open in spring next year with murals, a basketball court, a playground and grassy play areas. It's just two blocks away from the first Lexington Pocket Park, which is well cared for by the members of the Santa Monica Western Residents Group.
