Plummer Park is a park in West Hollywood, California, on the eastern side of the city. The east side of West Hollywood is dominated by Russian immigrants, and the park is a popular gathering place for Russians. In 2005, a controversial monument to Soviet Army dead in World War II was built in the park. While supported by many local residents, it was criticized as being inappropriate given that some might interpret it as honoring the USSR under Joseph Stalin. It currently hosts the Los Angeles Sunday Assembly.

  • Plummer Park is a park in West Hollywood, California, on the eastern side of the city. The east side of West Hollywood is dominated by Russian immigrants, and the park is a popular gathering place for Russians. In 2005, a controversial monument to Soviet Army dead in World War II was built in the park. While supported by many local residents, it was criticized as being inappropriate given that some might interpret it as honoring the USSR under Joseph Stalin. It currently hosts the Los Angeles Sunday Assembly. In 1874, Col. Eugenio Plummer acquired official title to 160 acres from SeƱora Francisca Perez, who had occupied this land under preemption law in 1869. Plummer Park and Plummer House were acquired by Los Angeles County from Senor Plummer in 1937 for $15,000. The Los Angeles Audubon Society (LAAS) has been headquartered in Plummer House since then and (in 1983) moved into another building in Plummer Park (Great Hall Long Hall) which was originally constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1937. In May 2011 the Audubon Society was given notice to leave by the city of West Hollywood who are planning to demolish the building in 2012 and create underground parking as part of a controversial plan to create a modern park.A group of residents called Protect Plummer Park was organized in early 2011 to preserve the historic Plummer Park. Plummer Park and Plummer House (which was built in 1870 and moved to the Leonis Adobe grounds in Calabasas in 1983) have been designated a State Historic Landmark by the State of California in 1956. The park is between Santa Monica Boulevard and Fountain Ave, bordered by N. Vista St. and N Fuller Ave. 6 blocks west of La Brea Avenue. There is a farmers' market every Monday morning in the north parking lot. In 2001 a new community center was completed on the site designed by Koning Eizenberg Architecture, Inc. (see photograph).
