Hollywood Pop-Up Park to Open May 20
Hollywood Pop!, a semi-permanent pop-up park, to open with a
park is a pilot demonstration project intended
to explore the future of public space in Hollywood.
Hollywood Pop!, a new pop-up park opening at the corner of Selma and Ivar, answers a need for more public space in the
heart of Hollywood. The park will feature colorful cartoon-like furniture pieces and amenities like seating, tables,
landscaping, shade and wayfinding signage. Activating a previously vacant space surrounded by secondary schools, residences,
retail and restaurants, the park will serve residents and visitors through 2016.
Interactive stations, including a photo booth, will invite input from participants at the opening event. Community members
will be able to test different park amenities and contribute ideas on how public space could be improved throughout Hollywood.
Hollywood Pop! is unique in that it is situated on private property. Creating public space through partnerships with private
property owners could transform the street scene for Hollywood and other communities.
Hollywood Pop! is funded by the Sunset & Vine Business Improvement District and designed by LA- Más, an urban-based L.A. non-profit
that blends policy and architecture to create community impact. Dunn-Edwards provided the paint and Sunburst Rocks provided
