Community members are invited to participate in the second workshop on improvements to the 1-acre lawn at Reed Park. Concept design options developed from public input received to date will be presented for community input. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 28, at Miles Memorial Playhouse (1130 Lincoln Blvd.).

Located on Lincoln Boulevard between Wilshire Boulevard and California Avenue, Reed Park opened in 1892, making it one of Santa Monica’s oldest parks. Reed Park is home to the historic Miles Memorial Playhouse, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, a senior lunch program, and offices for the City’s CREST after school program.

The most recent set of improvements completed in 2012 included the addition of a new playground, a new garden adjacent to Miles Playhouse, new landscaping along Wilshire Boulevard and 7th Street, and general facility updates.

The lawn located in the northeast corner at Lincoln and California makes up one fifth of the 5.3-acre park. It is located north of Miles Playhouse, east of the basketball courts, and across the street from St. Monica’s Church. In this final phase of improvements for Reed Park, the 1-acre lawn will be redesigned to better connect with the rest of this active park.

Public input is needed to ensure that the northeast section of the park will meet community needs.
