The plans and environmental review for 18-Acre Elysian Park Parcel are available on the Rec & Parks website. You can read more about it on The Eastsider LA. Public comment on the MND closes 3PM, October 19, 2009.

This is the only part of Elysian Park that is safely accessible by pedestrians from Elysian Valley, Red Car Property and Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract neighborhoods as it is the only part of Elysian Park with a sidewalk on our side of the park. There are no sidewalks on Stadium Way, the 6-lane highway entrance to Elysian Park from Riverside Drive.
