The slow, lumbering mission to turn Downtown LA into a vibrant cultural hub got a lift when a portion of Grand Park's 12 acres officially opened to the public in July 2012. Dotted with fountains, picnic lawns, bright pink benches and plenty of nooks from which to sit and people-watch, Grand Park is a bright urban oasis that proves the city has a sense of romance. The park plays host to performances, gatherings and other community events.

This park has a lot of different events and it has so much potential. It's a great spot to just sit and enjoy the city. I hope more people start hanging out here!
Grand Park is always throwing events that draw big crowds which is fun. Even if there's nothing happening, it's fun to just take a stroll.
Grand Park is an urban oasis that highlights the best of Downtown LA. It's spacious, with multiple levels so that you can get great views of a few notable surrounds, and the brightly colored tables and chairs make it pop (though they could do away with some of the lime green highlights). There are usually a few big events that happen here each month - art shows, music performances, craft fairs - and as long as it's not horrifically hot, the park is a really enjoyable place to spend an afternoon.
