History

Hollenbeck Park has been a lush oasis in the neighborhood since 1892. The park was named for John Edward Hollenbeck (1829 - 1885), founder of First National Bank, whose widow, along with former L.A. Mayor William Workman, donated 21 acres (85,000 m2) of land.

In May of 1929, the Laurel and Hardy film Men O' War was filmed here, back when there were still rental boats for the public.

In the 1950s, the Golden State Freeway was built against its western boundary.
