LA’s historic gem, the Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Art Park, has seen tremendous success lately. We recently restored this architectural masterpiece, and there has been a significant increase in attendance. The latest news is that my colleagues on the City Council and I took steps to make the facility even more sustainable. We passed an ordinance that ensures the revenue generated from ticket sales at the facility are reinvested back into the House for maintenance and upkeep. Now that it's sparkling again, we need to keep it that way indefinitely. This is important moving forward, especially since the UNESCO World Heritage organization is considering designating the landmark as a notable cultural and historic site. PHOTO: Joshua White

O'FARRELL, REC AND PARKS EXTEND HOLLYWOOD POOL SEASON THROUGH OCTOBER

HOLLYWOOD - The newly renovated pool at the Hollywood Recreation Center will remain open for two additional months, Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and the Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) announced today.

Both the Councilmember and RAP agreed to fund an extension of the Hollywood pool hours, on weekends from 1-5 p.m., through October 25. The pool season was originally scheduled to close for the year after Labor Day weekend.

“I really want my constituents to enjoy the waning summer months in this beautifully renovated City-owned facility,” said Councilmember O’Farrell, who is also Chair of the City’s Arts, Parks, and LA River Committee. “I am thrilled to partner with the Department to provide greater accessibility to parks and more recreational options for all Angelenos.”
