Plummer Park Master Plan Update
LOCATION:West Hollywood, CA
CLIENT:City of West Hollywood
The master plan update's goals are 1) to dramatically increase the quantity and quality of open space and 2) to provide overall cohesion within the park while improving its relationships with the surrounding neighborhood. In so doing the plan needed to both increase opportunities for future recreation and community facilities and provide a road map for future growth. Major uninterrupted open space was consolidated into a central Great Lawn providing space for unprogrammed recreational use as well visual relief within the park. The plan includes the creation of an integrated network of paths and promenades across the park and a water fountain at the heart of the park. It also calls for the appropriation of three commercial properties along Santa Monica Boulevard for the creation of a linear public garden as a foreground to future new community facilities. Parking is concentrated at the north and south ends of the park.
