City of West Hollywood Hart Park Site Improvement Project
Hart Park is a Local Cultural Resource of the City of West Hollywood in the County of Los Angeles. The grounds offer wonderful outdoor amenities to the public including an AIDS Memorial, off-leash fenced-in dog park area, picnic tables and beautiful landscaping. A portion of the building is used as a theatrical center by The Actors Studio.
This conceptual phase of design will involve community input events to obtain feedback on desires and concerns for the park improvements. These events will be followed up with community presentations to graphically demonstrate what the improvements will look like and engage community participation to arrive at a final agreed upon design concept.
The primary focus of the improvements is to provide access to the park for all park patrons by upgrading existing parking and ramp locations, improving the dog park surface and amenities, and enhancing security features including lighting.
Improvements and upgrades to the existing buildings will be performed in a separate phase of work.
Local Cultural Resource
The structure is a two level, L-shaped house with a wood shingle exterior and gable roof. The “L” shape is open to the southeast and a square brick chimney projects from the roof on the northern side.
The entrance to the house, on the south facade facing DeLongpre Avenue, is a plain wood paneled door with a Classical plain wood paneled door with a Classical wooden pediment and surrounding molding. Fenestrations include French doors, paired casements and six over six double sash windows. The windows have molded wood lugsills and the French doors have heavy wood lintels. Second floor windows break the cornice line and punctuate the roof with shed roofed dormers. The eastern façade features a stone column and wood trellis. There is a one story detached wooden structure at the rear of the property.

City of West Hollywood staff from the Urban Design And Architecture Studio and Facilities and Recreation Services along with landscape architects from MIG presented community opinion results to the public on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
Community input was collected over a period of several weeks at various outreach events conducted throughout West Hollywood. The opinions collected reflect resident’s opinions on topics relating to accessibility updates for parking and pathways, dog park amenities, maintenance and cleanliness, and the cultural significance of the property. Participants attending Thursday’s presentation also had the opportunity to provide feedback after the presentation. An audio tape of the presentation is available to anyone interested in listening.
The next public presentation will be held on Wednesday, March 25 during the Disability Advisory Board meeting which begins at 6:00pm in Rooms 5 & 6 at the Plummer Park Community Center. During this presentation concept design plans will be shown for review and comment.
Please contact Christina Sarkees, Senior Project Management Supervisor with the City of West Hollywood at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the audio tape or with any questions regarding the Hart Park Improvement Project.
