Exposition Park, home to past Olympics, will get revamp and green space

California Natural Resources Secretary Wade Crowfoot joined state and local leaders this week to promote future plans for Exposition Park, including dramatic updates to its existing museums, the addition of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art and plans to transform 14 acres of badly needed green space to serve neighborhoods south of the park.

On Thursday, Feb, 23, newly appointed Exposition Park General Manager Andrea Ambriz greeted dignitaries and supporters before her swearing-in ceremony at the Los Angeles Coliseum, the centerpiece of Exposition Park.

Ambriz has a big job ahead, overseeing the park’s proposed master plan which is aimed at creating greater access, equity and sustainability at one of L.A.’s urban jewels. Expo Park is among the top five tourist and visitor destinations in Southern California, drawing 4 million visitors annually.

The event this week focused on an update to the park’s master plan, which officials said “charts a course for greater access, equity and environmental sustainability.”

Exposition Park, a 152-acre site just south of Downtown Los Angeles, is home to world-class museums, famed sporting venues and community assets aimed at educating and entertaining local residents and tourists.

It was a site of the famed 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympic Games and will be a site for the 2028 Olympic Games. It will also host events related to the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
