Windsor Village, a tight-knit neighborhood tucked in south of the Wilshire Ebell, is holding its Annual Meeting and Potluck this Saturday, October 25 from 12-3 pm.
Windsor Village residents will gather in the backyard of 844 S. Windsor Blvd to share food, hear from public leaders, and hold an election for the Board of Directors of the Windsor Village Association. More information can be found at www.windsorvillage.net.
Harold Henry Park, the centerpiece of Windsor Village located at Windsor and 9th, is expected to be officially closed beginning the first week of November for a 3-5 month renovation of the playground, a new quiet garden with seating and native plantings in the central portion of the park, and new walkways and pergola over the picnic area at west end of the park. A Notice to Proceed has been issued by the City of Los Angeles for Evergreen Construction to begin work at the park.
The Harold Henry Park renovation is being paid for with Quimby funds designated for the Wilshire area and is being implemented by the LA Department of Rec & Parks, with guidance from City Council District 4. The City has worked with closely with residents of Windsor Village on the design and new equipment and hardscape for the park, which is expected to be completed late in the first quarter of 2015. The entire park will be fenced off and not open to the public during the renovation.
Editor’s note: An early rendition of the story incorrectly stated the park renovation was guided by CD 10 when in fact the plan was put forward by Councilman Tom Labonge and Deputy Ben Seinfeld of CD 4.
