60+ years after being torn in two by the construction of the 101 freeway, the proposed Hollywood Central Park seeks to reconnect a community by creating a world-renowned urban oasis. 

When completed, the 44 acre green space would cap a mile section of the 101 freeway between Santa Monica and Hollywood Boulevards and will include pedestrian meadows, an amphitheater, a community center, small retailers (bike rentals, art galleries, seasonal markets, and restaurants), play grounds, athletic courts, and interactive community areas. 

The project is currently in the Environmental Impact Study phase and is estimated to cost $1 billion to complete. This landmark infrastructure project will generate over 40,000 direct and indirect jobs over the next decade and will create a much needed green space in the heart of the concrete jungle.
