Beverly Hills’ La Cienega Park to be redesigned by Johnson Favaro

The park will include new indoor and outdoor space.

By David Malone, Associate Editor | May 24, 2019

Johnson Favaro has created a comprehensive master plan that will transform the 17-acre La Cienega Park and Recreation Complex in Beverly Hills. The master plan includes an indoor recreation center, an indoor tennis center, an outdoor aquatics center, a community center, a pre-school, and 12-acres of baseball fields and open park space.

The new 30,000-sf recreation facility will house 3 indoor basketball courts, an aquatic center with a fitness pool and a family pool, and 16 tennis courts (eight will be indoors and eight will be outdoors). The 25,000-sf community center will include a multipurpose room, six classrooms, an art studio, a teen center, and a dance studio.



The community and recreation space will all be located on the west side of La Cienega Boulevard, opening up 10 acres of park space on the east side. Six of the 10 acres will be dedicated to softball and baseball fields, while the other four will accommodate playgrounds, a jogging path, and unprogrammed open space.

The east and west sides of the park will be united via an elevated platform built over La Cienega Boulevard. Most of the platform will be covered in grass and landscape. Trees and new landscaping will also be installed on both sides of La Cienega Boulevard to create a more welcoming threshold of entry for vehicles approaching from the south.

The revitalization plan will also incorporate above and below grade parking for 600 vehicles. A sub-regional storm water retention facility will be built below the ball fields. Construction of the first phase is projected to begin in 2021 with completion slated for 2023.
