Ask Chris: I Hear a Park is Being Built Along the Freeway Near Santa Monica Boulevard and Bronson Avenue. What Will it Be Called?

Our in-house historian has the answer

There are indeed plans for a green space above the 101 freeway. The proposal is for a mile-long grassy strip, similar to the 101 Park near Olvera Street downtown, to be called Hollywood Central Park. The project will create 38 acres of fields and meadows that would bridge the sunken freeway and include a restaurant, playground, dog park, and an art gallery. No word yet on when construction will begin.
