On March 4th, 2011, Sunset Triangle Plaza opened in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
There has been increased demand in Los Angeles for safer and more welcoming streets for residents to play, walk, run, bicycle and relax. At the same time, City agencies are trying to decrease rates of obesity, improve air quality, create alternative transportation choices, address lack of park space and improve the walkability and accessibility of neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
Streets for People offers a cost efficient and time expedient approach to creating public plazas out of underutilized portions of our streets. These demonstration plazas are designed to be temporary (with movable barriers and furniture and easily removable street paint) and dynamic spaces that can become destinations for people of all ages, backgrounds and physical abilities; where a resident can linger, patronizing businesses or engaging with members of their community.
