November 8 > Grand Park Night Tour > Downtown LA

Since its grand opening on this month, Grand Park has made quite a splash in LA quickly becoming our city's official backyard. If you missed the block party and dancers, here's your chance to explore LA's newest urban oasis.  Join us for a special tour in collaboration with LA Forum as part of their Supercession series.  We can't promise choreographed dancers, but Tony Paradowski of Rios Clementi Hale Studios will be on hand to give us the guided tour and the inside story on how this amazing park came to be. 

One of the biggest parks in all of Los Angeles, the 12-acre Grand Park stretches from The Music Center on the west to City Hall on the east. Under the direction of the county, Grand Park was developed by Related Companies with an award-winning creative team, including landscape architect, Rios Clementi Hale Studios; general contractor, Charles Pankow Builders; environmental graphic design firm, Sussman/Prejza; and fountain design consultants, Fluidity.  Grand Park was also recently awarded The Building Team of the Year award by AIA Los Angeles.

Meet in front of the fountain.  It will be dark so bring headlamps or flashlights.  We'll provide glow sticks.  

Tickets: General admission $10, buy tickets HERE to reserve a spot on the tour.  LA Forum Members are FREE and Students admission is $5 but you will have to register on-site.
When: Thursday, November 8th 7pm to 8:30pm
Where: 210 N. Grand Avenue, LA, CA 90012 (Metro: Civic Center).  More info on getting there, HERE.
