PLAYGROUND AT HOOVER REC CENTER

In accordance with their University Park Specific Plan, the University of Southern California partnered with the Department of Recreation & Parks and the Los Angeles Parks Foundation to support the installation of an all-new, all-access playground at the neighboring Hoover Recreation Center. The playground features structures for ages 2-5 and 5-12 and was unveiled at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, November 1, 2018, with Councilmember Gil Cedillo, Recreation and Parks Department General Manager Mike Shull, Commissioner Sylvia Patsaouras, and many community members in attendance. This new amenity had been long-awaited, and since opening day has been a popular and well-loved amenity by the community and park staff.
