Bunker Hill Park

Julie Rico, President, Weeneez LLC "The Best Chili Dog in the West." & Executive Director LA Art Fest, responded to my inquiry with this proposal;

Dear Grand Avenue Enthusiasts,

At the park level I would love to see interactive sculptures, of course! In addition, I am interested in a pathway that is above the park with a floating pathway that rises to different levels throughout the Grand Avenue project. The pathway would function on many levels including:

Pods For people to rest
Pub Pods
Vendor Pods
Pods for people to Lunch
Pods for people to Observe below
Pods for Vendors
Pods for kids (a sort of Play House)
Pods that house interactive video art linked to other countries. For example there could be another POD in Mexico City and the LA person could see and communicate with the visitor in Mexico in the POD.

The pathway would be bent and shaped with a lot of character with the intersection of the PODS running throughout the Project.

The POD/Pathway concept would increase the flow of traffic from one end to the other end of the park. Instead of walking on the ground through the park you could take the POD route to your desired venue. The pathway could also function as a great exercise pathway. One part of the pathway could be separated for pedestrians that are interested in getting to their desired
location more quickly or walkers or runners.

It would look futuristic in the city of the future Los Angeles.
