Construyendo un mejor Barnsdall

barnsdallpark signSome of you may have seen the recent press in the Los Feliz Ledger and on Curbed Los Angeles about the increase in graffiti and homeless encampments at Barnsdall Park. The Barnsdall Art Park Foundation has been working steadily with City departments and members of the community to resolve these issues. Councilmember O’Farrell’s office called a meeting in late June that included representatives from all City departments responsible for Barnsdall Art Park, including: Recreation and Parks, Departamento de Asuntos Culturales, and Los Angeles Police Department; as well as representatives from Barnsdall Art Park Foundation, Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), People Assisting the Homeless (PATH), and the East Hollywood Los Feliz Homeless Coalition.

Some progress has been made to improve the situation, but not enough. We badly need increased maintenance and security officers for our beloved park so that all the patrons who come to the park to take art classes, see an exhibition, or just to find a peaceful refuge or meet with friends, can find a beautiful and secure park. We have offered to be part of the funding solution for park maintenance, although ultimately we believe it is the City’s responsibility to secure and maintain the park.

We are in constant contact with our local officials about ways to resolve this situation, but we encourage everyone to contact the Board of Recreation and Parks, the Mayor’s office, and the offices of Council Districts 4 y 13, and let them know the importance of supporting Barnsdall Art Park with increased maintenance and security. Or you can email us at

In addition to fundraising for programs and capital projects, we are committed to advocating for a strong future for Barnsdall Park and the preservation of Aline Barnsdall’s legacy. Gracias por su apoyo.
