Dear Atria, I told you that I will write about nice places Baba visited last year. I already covered Walt Disney Concert Hall in my previous post and today is about Grand Park in downtown LA. It is located in the heart of LA and it is a beautiful contrast to surrounding skyscrapers. It's a peaceful, friendly, green area where the busy downtown life slows down a bit. There is a lot of space to relax, picnic with friends, and enjoy the sun. The park’s signature colours of magenta and green provide a counterpoint to the neutral colours of the surrounding buildings. You can see in the pictures lovely magenta chairs, benches and tables.
There is also a Flag Garden, featuring historic American flags, that overlooks the Event Lawn and City Hall. I also liked the flow of the walkways and stairs. They guide you in a wandering fashion so subconsciously you may be relaxing instead of travelling in a straight path. I think they call them Broadway stairs. We spent good few hours relaxing in the park. There were no events on that day, but Grand Park was designed as a dynamic, inclusive environment for community events, cultural experiences, festivals, holiday celebrations and many other activities that engage and attract visitors from all communities in Los Angeles County. Park visitors can enjoy original programming, Music Centre programming, outdoor activities, interactive events, entertainment and many other activities that benefit from the park’s multi-use lawns, stages and spaces.
We will definitely visit the Grand Park again.
