Angels Knoll Park Gets a Planting

At the end of the day, plants sit waiting to be put in the ground.

Lower Angels Knoll Park got a little more colorful today, as a landscaping team installed plants and flowers throughout the under-construction space. The park abuts the northern 4th street portal for the Pershing Square subway station and connects via stairway to the grassy upper park and California Plaza.

Work on the renovated park has seemingly plodded along. The funding was approved all the way back in 2002, and construction finally began over a year ago. In recent months it has been rare to pass by the site and see more than one or two people at work. Last month the Community Redevelopment Agency told Curbed that the park would see a June 30 completion date.

The park sits on Parcel Y-1, the last site on Bunker Hill owned by the CRA. It was originally slated to hold a third California Plaza tower, but today its eventual use is uncertain. The agency has planned to issue an RFP for redevelopment proposals.
