As a fourth generation Angeleno, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has seen his hometown go through countless changes—including the transformation of MacArthur Park, home to Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles, in recent years.
In this Faces of Levitt video, Garcetti speaks of the way Levitt came in like a “spark in the entire community,” and how the world-class talent showcased throughout the free concert series is “enriching the experience for people who live there [and] bringing people who hadn’t been to MacArthur Park in years, if not decades.”
The impact of a Levitt Pavilion goes far beyond free, live music. Garcetti explains how the City of Los Angeles started to tend MacArthur Park better after seeing the renewed energy and activation occurring in the park.
