A large park in central Hollywood will serve those most in need! Capping the 101 Freeway is a great way to achieve this and it will provide direct access to the most densely, under served population in Hollywood and East Hollywood. I cannot think of another single, better public works endeavor for all of Los Angeles than this! Mitch O'Farrell

Capping the 101 Freeway to address decades of environmental and social justice impacts is an idea which deserves attention. "Friends of the Hollywood Cap Park" has been working diligently to raise awareness of the amazing possiblities and deserves your support.

The cap park is a visionary proposal to physically re-connect the community that had been cleaved in the 1950s with construciton of the 101 freeway with badly needed green space. Can't wait.

I have been involved with the Hollywood Cap Park since its inception. Parks over freeways have been popular for many years in other parts of the US and Europe. The concept is not a 'wild' idea; one of the the Los Angeles airport runways is over the Sepulveda 8 lane highway...no different than covering a portion of the 101!
