The 18-year history of the Warner Park Pavilion that debuted last week as the city of Los Angeles' only modern, open-air venue for free concerts, plays or dance performances represents a retreat from far grander plans to provide for the performing arts in the San Fernando Valley. But the facility itself--elegant, functional and democratic--still stands as an uncompromising realization of the ambitious goal of building a professional stage that shows off rather than overshadows the park setting.

As the old saw goes, it's hard to argue with success. But this year, as the Valley Cultural Center begins its 20th season of free outdoor Sunday concerts in Warner Park, executive director Marilyn Hankins plans to try something different. Every concert will start at 4 p.m. and feature local performers or entertainment for children. "At 4 p.m., we're trying to showcase some people who haven't made it yet," Hankins says. "It's all local talent." Some of the performers slated for that 4 p.m.

My family and I have been attending the 1989 Summer Concerts in the Park at Warner Park on Sunday evenings. We enjoy these events very much. I find it nostalgic of my childhood growing up here in the Valley in the 1950s. This program is perfect just as it is. ROBERTA HAVENS Tarzana

Temperatures are heating up, but rather than ducking inside, check out the offerings that are going on in the great outdoors. For entertainment under the sun--and occasionally under the stars--local venues offer everything from hikes to hoedowns, disco to mariachi, classical concerts to classic films. Michael Marks from the Santa Clarita Parks Recreation and Community Services Department says the fifth season of that city's summer concert series is more eclectic than ever.

On July 10 Mr. Henry Baker of Woodland Hills wrote of his dismay at the destruction of the tranquility of Warner Park by the Woodland Hills Cultural Foundation. This is a small change compared to the extravagant plans planned for the Sepulveda Basin by a group called the San Fernando Valley Cultural Foundation. On March 15 The Times wrote at length of the future of the Basin and included the dream of the foundation. They hope to raise $70 million to $100 million to finance an arts park with a 2,500-seat concert hall, an amphitheater, artists' workshop and galleries.

I must be crazy. Anyone who attends the wonderful Concerts in the Park series that runs Sundays at Warner Park in Woodland Hills and expects to hear the music must be crazy. We love music and have been in attendance for numerous concerts over the years. But no more. The rudeness displayed by the crowd is unbelievable. Talking, hollering, permitting children to run rampant, animals urinating and worse, and being totally unaware of the music or the rights of others to enjoy was only a start.

I went outside the other day to be greeted by the business end of 25 porta-potties where there was once the beautiful Warner Park. The park had been fenced in and admission was being charged for the Pacifica fair. When I and the others purchased around the park, we assumed that it would not be turned into the San Fernando fairgrounds, with admission being charged and thousands of non-Woodland Hills residents coming over to relieve themselves in facilities across from our front doors.

They looked like any other bunch of kids on an outing to the park as they tossed a football back and forth, chased each other in circles and kicked a soccer ball in the midmorning sun. But for the 75 Chinese exchange students, Sunday's excursion to Warner Center Park was their first taste of an American-style picnic, complete with the staples of hot dogs, potato chips, ice cream sandwiches and a few friends.

About 300 people rallied in Warner Park on Friday, opposing the North American Free Trade Agreement and calling for strict measures to bar immigrants from crossing U.S. borders illegally. The rally brought former U.S. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, a liberal who nearly took the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination with his solitary outcry against the Vietnam War, to the same stage with ultraconservative commentator George Putnam and former Republican Rep. William E. Dannemeyer.

The popular Summer Concerts in the Park series takes a turn toward the classical Sunday when the West Valley Symphony makes its first appearance at the Woodland Hills event. The 50-member group will perform George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" and selections from such Broadway shows as "Cats," "South Pacific," "Oklahoma!" and "Phantom of the Opera." The semi-professional orchestra, now in its 11th year, stages a regular six-concert series at Pierce College.

The Times is to be applauded for its excellent coverage of the summer concert series in Warner Park. These free concerts are always entertaining and rewarding. As the immediate past president of the Musicians Union in Los Angeles, I feel compelled to point out omissions in Karen Kingsbury's otherwise comprehensive article. Valley Cultural Center was founded by Lou Bredlow. Clyde Porter donated the stage and paid for much of the construction of the facilities and the salaries of the staff in the early years.
