Friend of the blog Ryan Johnson visited the Southeast L.A. County city of Huntington Park and spotted crews building that city's fourth parklet! SBLA reviewed Huntington Parks first parklet last summer.

Unless I am mistaken, if Huntington Park (population 60,000) can open this parklet before Los Angeles (population 4,000,000) repairs and re-opens its damaged parklet on Spring, then H.P. will be the county's clear parklet leader. Right now, I think Long Beach (population 470,000), L.A., and Huntington Park each have three parklets open. Los Angeles is planning four additional parklets, expected to open late in 2015. Huntington Park has three more on the way, too.

Johnson adds:

I ran into the Huntington Park public works team on Pacific today [February 12] installing their 4th parklet (with apparently 3 more being planned). Their Public Works supervisor I talked to was stoked about their impact in downtown, and several businesses are requesting more in front of their establishments. This one under construction is in front of Winchell's Donuts at Pacific/Randolph. They're so committed, they relocated the fire hydrant to appease the Fire Dept!
