Warren Resources, Inc. was recently honored to donate two parcels of residential land to the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. The land was donated in response to the 50 Parks Initiative, which was enacted by Councilman Joe Busciano and the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks in order to improve parks and recreation in the city of Wilmington for the benefit of the surrounding community.
On the rainy morning of December 7, 2013, the Drum Barracks Park was revealed to the surrounding community in a ribbon cutting ceremony. Warren Resources’ Vice President and General Manager, Bob Dowell, spoke about Warren’s contribution and how grateful we were as a company to be a part of such an incredible initiative.
Drum Barracks Park is a short walk from the homes of the many residents that surround it and the almost 17,000 square foot park provides its visitors with the opportunity to step back in time. Captivating historical displays are creatively intertwined and displayed on message boards throughout the park and in the playground equipment that was selected. Everything was brilliantly thought out, has a purpose, and serves the community of Wilmington in more ways than one. Drum Barracks Park on Banning Boulevard is more than sandboxes and slides. This park is a place of beauty, history, safety, and more importantly, a place for parents and children to come and make memories.
