On November 14, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved our school’s plans to convert the Weddington Golf & Tennis property into the Harvard-Westlake River Park.

River Park will feature a running track, two soccer fields, gymnasium, pool, eight tennis courts, café, putting green, walking trail and open spaces – all of which will be available for our students and the community to use.

While we appreciate the many Studio City residents who supported our vision for River Park during the multiple public hearings about our project, we also recognize that there were residents who expressed opposition or concerns.

Regardless of your position, please know that when River Park is built, its doors will be open to everyone and we sincerely hope you will make River Park a part of your way of life in Studio City.

Because we know that Weddington Golf & Tennis stands as a special place for many people in the community, we want to give ample advance notice of its closing date, which we have set for April 3, 2024. The golf course, driving range, and tennis courts will remain open for public use for the next 3+ months until the closure takes effect. At that point, the property will be fenced off except for Café Southwest, which will remain open. Pre-construction activities will commence after April 3.

To get ready for the construction process, we have applied with the City of Los Angeles to acquire various construction-related permits. The City will send notices to property owners and residents who live within 500 feet of the property as such permits are filed. The first notice neighbors will receive in the coming weeks is for the permit to begin demolition activities.

Throughout the construction process, we will remain in regular contact with you to make sure that you are apprised of activities at the site before new phases of construction commence. In addition, our project website, www.hwriverpark.com, will be updated regularly with the latest information regarding the construction process and timeline. At any time, you should feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns. Our number is 818-487-6601 and our email address, which is monitored daily, is riverpark@hw.com. We will get back to you right away.
