Do the City of Los Angeles and L.A. Unified School District officially support Community School Parks?


Yes! The L.A. City Council and School District unanimously approved motions in 2008 and 2009 to create a Community School Parks Working Group with People for Parks. The District chose four elementary schools and contributed $500,000 per school to build green turf multi-purpose fields, with running tracks around them, trees, and other park amenities. These included our two flagship sites at Trinity and Vine Elementary Schools. People for Parks ensures that supervision and recreation programs are in place at all Community School Parks through grants and foundation support. PFP will continue to work with the City and the LAUSD to open new Community School Parks as funds become available.
