Unidad Park & Community Garden
1644 Beverly Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90026
Located in the historic Filipinotown community of Los Angeles, Unidad Park is home to the nation’s largest Filipino-American mural west of the Mississippi River, which attracts both local residents and tourists alike. The mural was designed and painted by Eliseo Art Silva, who was inspired by the rich history of Filipino Americans’ involvement in the founding of the United Farm Workers movement.
After the park’s completion in 2007, local residents expressed a desire to add a community garden to the site, so in 2012, eighteen raised wooden garden beds were built and installed by residents. Free programming is offered to community members at Unidad Park, including exercise classes like Zumba, and workshops on gardening, composting and healthy eating.
