Weddington Golf and Tennis is a part of the fabric of our community. For over 50 years, this land has provided vital open space and recreational opportunities to thousands of residents, school children and sports enthusiasts from across the region each year.
It must be protected. Save LA River Open Space (SLAROS) was established in 2004 with the explicit mission to preserve the Weddington property as open space with permanent public access, and to protect it from unwanted development. Our work continues.
We need your help.
In 2017, Weddington was purchased by Harvard-Westlake with plans to repurpose the property into a sports complex to serve the school's athletic objectives. The school’s proposed “Harvard-Westlake River Park Plan” would eliminate golf, cut the number of tennis courts in half (from 16 to 8), and potentially unleash numerous impacts to the environment, to the surrounding neighborhoods and the broader Studio City community. Furthermore, the plan as proposed would strictly limit access to the site, thus depleting an important source of recreational green space available to the public.
What will happen...
9 hole public golf course- Bull-dozed
Driving Range - Gone
16 Community Tennis Courts - limited to 8 courts
200+ Mature Growth Trees - Cut down
We invite you to join us as we continue the fight to preserve the legacy of Weddington as open space that is open to the public.
