Stop the Barlow Hospital Project & Save Elysian Park

Members of the the Echo Park Historical Society are working with  a coalition of neighborhood groups opposed to a proposal by Barlow Hospital to build more than 800 homes on its property, which would demolish many of its historic structures. Barlow’s 25-acres sit right next door to Elysian Park, across the street from the Avenue of the Palms. Think of what kind of impact the construction and development of more than 800 residences – packed into large towers – would have have on Elysian Park.
