The land under this park was born from both the mountains and the sea. Lawndale sits where ancient sand dunes met the pool-studded prairie. Just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, Rudolph Park brings a coastal experience to a neighborhood that was identified to being in real need of accessible parkland.
The design takes inspiration from the site’s hidden geomorphology to create a joyful landscape punctuated by natural and sculpted materials. We worked with The Trust for Public Land and From Lot to Spot to realize the community’s wishes. The two-acre park is filled with inspiring places to play, climb, exercise, socialize and host events. Our goals for the new park were to enrich the lives of the surrounding community and inspire its youngest visitors to connect with the great outdoors. Now that the Rudolph Park is open, we’re pretty thrilled to see how it is reshaping the life of the neighborhood.
