HIGHLAND PARK – The arrival of heavy-duty construction equipment this week signaled that work had begun on building an approximately $3 million park at the corner of York Boulevard and Avenue 50.
York Park, the result of several years of workshops and a public vote on the final design, will occupy a now empty lot that will be the site of a small amphitheater, tree-house style children’s play equipment, musical play equipment, water misters and a public library book drop.
A spokesman for Councilman Jose Huizar said the construction of the park is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
