Vice Mayor Garcia to host Armory Park update meeting

Long Beach Vice Mayor Robert Garcia will host a final community meeting about the Armory Park project next Monday, May 20 from 6pm to 7:30pm at the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum, 695 Alamitos Ave.
The new park will remove a dangerous intersection at 7th Street and Alamitos Avenue and create new green space on a full city block adjacent to the Museum of Latin American Art, according to Garcia’s office. The project is fully funded and construction will begin at the end of the year.
“We intend to not only build a great green space but a park unlike any other in the city,” Garcia said. “We are planning on an innovative design that will provide recreation space and make a statement.”
The community meeting is open to the public, and items to be discussed include design, parking impacts and official park naming. The Public Works and Parks and Recreation Departments will be in attendance to hear community feedback.
Design elements that will be included in the almost one-acre park include a playground, skate elements and a multipurpose plaza and amphitheater.
