Just Another Day In SouthLA

Alondra Park Turning Ultimate Water Adventure

Located in a unincoroparted area near Lawndale, in the South Bay region of LA County, El Camino Village neighborhood now has some superb options for staying cool this summer.  After four years, $16.5 million, and a lot of sweat and tears (I’m assuming from the construction workers)  Alondra Park will be unveiled on Monday, July 25 as a completely  new facility, including a 25 x 25 meter pool, a 6,000-square-foot pool house and recreation building, and a 3,000 – square-foot water “splash pad” area — all of which will be welcome relief as 2012 is on schedule to become the hottest year in United States history. The upgraded park, courtesy of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas will have other amenities as well, including a 14,000-square-foot skateboard park, a new restroom building, and new picnic shelters.

On a different note, the park is now an environmental, as well as recreational, standout. The project incorporates design elements that aim to conserve water usage and minimize run-off, such as drought tolerant landscaping. Other green building features have been included that meet Silver Certification requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.

Ummmm Wheres El Camino Village?
