Ascot Hills Nature Park Grand Opening

Thrilled to join the community Saturday for Grand Opening of Ascot Hills Nature Park. Along with the 19 acres my office helped secure on Elephant Hill, El Sereno and the surrounding communities now have more than 100 acres of open-space land to hike and enjoy nature. I want to thank local residents for never letting up and my staff and Recreation and Parks for getting creative when state froze our funding. I encourage all Angelenos to come enjoy the largest park on the Eastside!
