Added to Universal's stock of standing sets, this replica of a community park was constructed in 2003 for the Will Ferrell soccer comedy "Kicking and Screaming". It features a full-size soccer field, baseball diamond and clubhouse structures.
A production which shoots a film or TV show in this location has no need to apply for the many permits and applications necessary to film in a public space.
The area also provides a well-screened open space which is not on the usual tram routes. This seclusion makes the location popular with directors of high-profile projects who want to stay away from prying eyes (and lenses).
