Exposition Park has come a long way since its beginnings as an agricultural park in 1872. It has served as a horse racing track, the site for the 1923 Monroe Doctrine Centennial Exposition and the 1984 Olympics. Today, Exposition Park is a thriving cultural monument that provides a space for sports, entertainment, learning and recreation to the South Los Angeles community, the Greater Los Angeles Area and visitors from all over the world.
