Renovating L.A.'s Central Park

Yesterday, The Los Angeles Downtown News reported on a new effort to renovate and revitalize Pershing Square, the most famous (and perhaps only) public park in downtown Los Angeles.  Anschutz Entertainment Group, the world's largest sports teams and events coordinator, and owner of the Staples Center, has agreed to provide $700,000 in funding for the project.  While any particulars regarding the specific terms of the commitment remain unclear, the reasons for the proposed renovations stem from concerns over access and safety brought on as a result of the 'Occupy Los Angeles' protests last summer.  Pershing Square is beloved by many, and provides many recreational activities to the public, including outdoor movie screenings in the summer, and ice skating in the winter.
