He actively supported and exhibited his work at many of the outdoor art festivals, gaining credibility and community recognition for many of the African-American artists of the Altadena area.</p>
<p>The park has eight oak and 60 shade trees, and features a multi-purpose sports field, fitness zone and walking path that circles the park. There are good views of the mountains, and picnic areas with barbecues.</p> <p>The park is the furthest south in Altadena and in an area surrounded by homes. It gets very busy on weekends.</p>
