Hollenbeck Park Stone Walls
The Annual Report from 1932-33 of the Los Angeles Board of Park Commissioners describes federal involvement in the development of Hollenbeck Park:
“With Reconstruction Finance corporation and County Welfare labor it was possible to improve this park by resurfacing 4,050 square yards of old walks, as well as renovating and grading four acres of sloping hillsides.
The park was further improved with the moving of six large trees, planting 28 new trees, 314 shrubs, and 1600 flowering plants. Fifteen hundred square feet of new lawn was also sown. All of this work greatly improved the appearance of Hollenbeck Park and added to its usability by the public.”
