The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is poised to approve a mitigated neighborhood declaration which would facilitate the development of a new public park in unincorporated West Carson.

The proposed Del Amo Neighborhood Park, slated for an 8.5-acre site at the corner of Del Amo Boulevard and New Hampshire Avenue, is being planned in coordination with the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust.  Funding sources include up to $4 million from the Shell Oil Company - which previously owned the property - as well as $1.68 million in L.A. County park fees, approximately $862,000 from Proposition A, $1 million from the State Coastal Conservancy and $2.5 million in various donations.

A preliminary site plan from the landscape architecture firm MIG shows the proposed park with features including:

  • A picnic area
  • A basketball court
  • Two futsal courts
  • Multiple open grass fields
  • A baseball field
  • A hardscape plaza
  • A walking path
  • A parking lot

Documents submitted to the Board of Supervisors indicate that the park site has already undergone soil remediation.
