The L.A. County Board of Supervisors approved a master plan that would dramatically transform Magic Johnson Park into a community oasis.

Acting on a motion by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, the Board made an initial investment of $2 million towards designing Phase I of the project. The new design will include a splash pad, wedding pavilion, community event center, amphitheater, civic plaza, sculpture garden, reflecting pond, picnic shelters,d and other amenities.
“The plan reflects feedback from hundreds of residents and the result is visionary– there is something for everyone,” Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said during a public hearing at the Hall of Administration. “The plan represents a new era for this community, and we are going forward.”

Magic Johnson Park spans over 120 acres in the heart of Willowbrook, just a few blocks away from the Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Campus, which is undergoing its own transformation.
