Why put a park over a freeway?

In a city that’s becoming more and more dense, finding areas to build parks and create public spaces has become increasingly difficult due to the limited land available. Several cities have used the area above freeways to provide communities with more open space, local and regional connectivity, and pedestrian access. Park 101 aims to achieve the same goals by bridging the space over the 101 Freeway to knit together historic communities that were separated by the construction of the 101 Freeway. It will provide much-needed open space in an increasingly dense downtown, provide better pedestrian and bicycle linkages among Little Tokyo, Civic Center, Chinatown, El Pueblo Historic Monument and Union Station, the region’s largest transit hub.
