Located just south of Downtown Los Angeles, Exposition Park is home to a world-class collection of museums, sports facilities and recreational areas. Exposition Park also offers diverse cultural, entertainment and educational activities. The 160-acre site was founded as Agricultural Park in 1872 and subsequently renamed Exposition Park in 1910. The park has since become one of L.A.’s premier cultural and special event destinations.
The L.A. Sports Arena ended its life in March with a sold-out Bruce Springsteen concert, and now construction has begun on a new sports venue in Exposition Park. Since 1959, the L.A. Sports Arena has hosted a variety of sports and entertainment venues, notably the L.A. Lakers, L.A. Clippers and college basketball teams from USC and UCLA. It served our community well.
Los Angeles Hosts Another Sports Venue
A new sports venue is arriving in LA! The new venue will be a $250-million Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC). Designed by architectural firm Gensler, it will begin its life in Exposition Park. Banc of California Stadium will be a 22,000-seat stadium, featuring a ‘European-style’ design. The new design will be an open-air venue with steeply-raked and sweeping style seating shaped around the field. The design will also put fans in a closer relationship with the playing field and significantly enhance their viewing experience.
The complex will also feature commercial and restaurant opportunities that will be geared towards the larger community. It will also welcome the community with generous pedestrian areas and tree-lined walkways which will lead to other attraction and venues in the park. The stadium joins a number of new attractions coming to the park area, including the recently-proposed Lucas Museum of Narrative Art (LMNA).
