Features of the “grand promenade” envisioned more than two decades ago include: custom wood benches, lamp posts with the waterfront’s signature Angel Wing fixtures, drinking fountains, drought-tolerant plants lining the stretch of the concrete and granite paver walkway, more than 30 trees, and the same wood and cable safety railing that runs throughout the completed areas of the waterfront.  The Promenade and Town Square project represents the strong public-private partnership between West Harbor and the Port of Los Angeles.  The conceptual design was developed by West Harbor’s world-renowned landscape architect James Corner Field Operations, designer of iconic open spaces in major metropolitan settings, including the High Line in New York City.
