Park Sites

Western / Gage Gateway Park

Western Gage Pocket Park x 400This site was transferred from the former Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA/LA), which had previously performed Phase I and Phase II ESAs on the site, finding hazardous contamination consisting of lead and arsenic in shallow soil and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The City is planning to redevelop the site as a park, with improvements including attractive landscaping, sidewalk repairs, architectural features, lights, and street trees. Brownfields Program received grant funding through the State Water Board Orphan Site Cleanup Fund to perform additional groundwater and subsurface investigations and develop a cleanup plan at this site. Once the site is clean, work on the park is planned to resume in the near future.
