$150M athletic complex breaks ground next to LAX

Lulu’s Place will span 31 acres in Westchester

Just north of LAX, construction commenced last week on a $150-million athletic and education complex billed as one of the largest philanthropic investments in the history of Los Angeles

Lulu’s Place, which will span across 31 acres of long-vacant land on the north side of Westchester Parkway, will include tennis courts, soccer fields, playground areas, walking paths, and a dog park. The facilities are to be made available to the general public, with academic, athletic, and wellness programs to be offered at free or low-cost to children from the surrounding community.

The project is named in honor of the late Carol “Lulu” Kimmelman, a former LAUSD teacher and a member of the USC women’s tennis team that won the 1983 national championship.
