Baldwin Hills Park Master Plan

The two square mile Baldwin Hills is the last undeveloped open space in the Los Angeles urban area. Since 1924, the landscape has been a resource for oil and gas production. Around 350 acres of the site belong to Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area and the remaining 900 acres are in private ownership. The Master Plan seeks to balance preservation, conservation and restoration of sensitive native habitat, active and passive recreation, community, education and cultural facilities and the creation of economic generators. The landscape typologies that exist in the Baldwin Hills such as canyons and fans, provide the opportunity to structure a unique framework for the development of this new urban park in Los Angeles.
