Alpine Park Expansion

Los Angeles, California

Client: City of Los Angeles, Bureau of Engineering

AHBE was tasked to transform this vacant, blighted hillside into a place for the Downtown Los Angeles Chinatown community to gather and play, exercise and heal, rest and contemplate. With nearly one hundred feet of elevation change for this one-acre site, our design challenge was site accessibility. Connectivity and community building however drove our design vision, which was a Park of 10,000 Journeys - an experience; a journey of the mind, body, and spirit. The park is designed to be multi-functional and to serve a diverse community, including children and senior adults.
