Councilmember Tom LaBonge, city officials, community members attended the dedication of Renee’s Place universal-access playground at Pan Pacific Park on Monday. The $850,000 play area was dedicated to Renee Weitzer, Chief of Staff and Planning Deputy in Council District 4.
“This wonderful new playground is a reflection of the great Renee Weitzer in every way, a brilliant tribute and a great gift to the children of the city of Los Angeles,” said Councilmember LaBonge, chair of the City Council’s Arts, Parks, Health and Aging Committee.
Renee’s Place features two separate age-appropriate sections, one area for 2- to 5-year-olds and the other for 5- to 12-year-olds. Both areas are accessible to disabled as well as fully able children. There is also a mister to cool children off on hot afternoons. It was funded through a generous $200,000 donation from Legacy Partners, L.A. for Kids (Prop. K) funds, and Council District 4 Quimby funds.
