The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is poised to approve a mitigated neighborhood declaration which would facilitate the development of a new public park in unincorporated West Carson.
The proposed Del Amo Neighborhood Park, slated for an 8.5-acre site at the corner of Del Amo Boulevard and New Hampshire Avenue, is being planned in coordination with the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust. Funding sources include up to $4 million from the Shell Oil Company - which previously owned the property - as well as $1.68 million in L.A. County park fees, approximately $862,000 from Proposition A, $1 million from the State Coastal Conservancy and $2.5 million in various donations.
A preliminary site plan from the landscape architecture firm MIG shows the proposed park with features including:
- A picnic area
- A basketball court
- Two futsal courts
- Multiple open grass fields
- A baseball field
- A hardscape plaza
- A walking path
- A parking lot
Documents submitted to the Board of Supervisors indicate that the park site has already undergone soil remediation.
