Got an idea for what to name Spring Street's forthcoming new park? That's one of the agenda items for a Monday town hall on the impending green space.

A final design for the L-shaped lot that sits between 4th and 5th was unveiled last month. It features an oval-shaped lawn and rectangular plaza, along with a water feature and connections between Spring and Harlem Alley.

The meeting will be hosted by the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council's Parks, Recreation and Open Space committee, which helped organize community involvement in the park's planning.

The meeting will take place at The Exchange, 114 W. 5th, and will run from 6:30 to 8pm. Included is a presentation of ideas UCLA Extension Landscape Architecture students and a discussion of next steps and timeline for the park's opening.
