What is The Lot at Hollywood Park?

According to its website, “The Lot at Hollywood Park is a new outdoor events space located on the grounds of Hollywood Park, a near 300-acre (soon-to-be 365) live, work, play destination in Inglewood, California. Catering to Angelenos from all walks of life, The Lot at Hollywood Park features a host of entertainment programming, including concerts, drive-in movies, and more.”

It’s a new development near the new SoFi Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers, and the drive-thru movie and marketplace event in this article is a great change to get a first look at some of the new site.

The name also stems from the fact that the lot is in the same vicinity as the Hollywood Park Casino, which is apparently open for outdoor gaming.
