Beverly Hills city officials placed shovels into fresh earth at Beverly Gardens Park to break ground on the landscaping restoration project, which includes an approved $100,000 to restore the lily pond.

Aside from restoring the lily pond, other notable restoration tasks and notes include:
  • Restoring the circular fountain
  • New plantings at the water features
  • Retaining the photo opportunity area
  • Bollard lighting on the pathways
  • Existing trees to remain in place
  • Protect the Moreton Bay Fig tree
  • Relocate the the Mediterranean fan palm to the Palm Garden
The Friends of Beverly Gardens Park spearheaded the efforts to restore the 1.9-mile long park, which is located on the block between Beverly Drive and Canon Drive along Santa Monica Boulevard. The stretch separates the city's commercial and residential area.

Constuction is anticipated for completion on Jan. 20, 2014.
