LA State Historic Park to Close for Renovations in February

LA State Historic Park will receive an $18 million dollar renovation.

In February, the 32-acre LA State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles will close for a yearlong renovation. The park has held home for many events such as HARD Summer, HARD Day Of The Dead, FYF Fest, and Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour. According to State Parks Superintendent Sean Woods, the renovations are slated to cost $18-$20 million. The money will create a welcome pavilion, an amphitheater, permanent bathrooms, two 75-space parking lots, and a promenade for farmers markets among other things. 

“We’re not exporting excavated soil. We’re using it around the park, so it’s efficient and saves money,” Woods said. “But that means the entire park has to be under construction at the same time.”

Where do you think HARD will hold their festivals this year? Let us know in the comments below.
