Tomorrow, the Grand Park will open in downtown Los Angeles. It’s the first real park in that urban environment… four blocks of grassy terraces leading from Grand Avenue down to North Hill Street. On an official tour, KCRW’s Frances Anderton began at the top - on Grand Avenue between the County Courthouse and the Hall of Administration, just above the Arthur J. Will Fountain, which hasn’t been visible for years.
