This park is not here because of any vision by a politician or plan. This park is here because of community agitation led by The City Project, Concerned Citizens of Southcentral Los Angeles, the Chinatown community, Anahuak Youth Sports Association, and other diverse grassroots leaders. This is the greatest environmental justice victory in the history of Los Angeles, and led to the revitalization of the L.A. River. Kevin de Leon, former President of the California Senate and Speaker of the California Assembly.
