In October 2017, Harvard-Westlake purchased Weddington Golf & Tennis, a 16-acre property in Studio City bounded by Whitsett Avenue and the Los Angeles River, less than a mile from Harvard-Westlake’s upper school campus. We are enthusiastically working to transform the site into the Harvard-Westlake River Park, which will offer open space and athletic and recreational opportunities to students and the community.

The River Park will offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to Studio City, to preserve urban open space, to reduce water use significantly by capturing, cleaning, and reusing stormwater runoff, to reintroduce native plants, trees, and animal life to this stretch of the Los Angeles River, and to create recreational and athletic facilities for Harvard-Westlake and the public alike.
