Elysian Park is supposed to be a family-oriented space in the heart of Los Angeles. In fact, I have seen many birthday celebrations, BBQ gatherings, and even “movies at the park” events there. Unfortunately, vandals and drug addicts are frequent visitors as well. The park is always dirty. Fences are broken, trash is found everywhere. In my experience the only thing that really works at this park is the group of security guards that will kick you out after 9pm when they close, which happened to me when I was shooting the Dodger Stadium photo sequences that are part of the first video TimeLAX 01.
