I know it's been a while... the last several months have been busy for us. People for Parks is on a roll! We've been growing so fast. I wanted you to know about all our good work!

- This year, we started with just 2 Community School Parks. Now we have 11 schools open on weekends in low-income communities across LA City.
- We hired our second staffer, Rosanna Del Rio, an expert community organizer who will work with parents to take on leadership roles in CSP activities. This will help communities take ownership over park spaces, keeping them safe, vibrant and sustainable.
- And last but not least, I'm so proud to have launched our new and snazzy website!
In just a matter of months, we've expanded our reach to thousands more youth and parents across the city and we've built stronger partnerships with neighborhood organizations, elected officials, principals, and city staff.
2016 has been a big year, and we're stronger than ever. Thank you for playing a big part in our success. Stay tuned for additional updates.

P.S. Help me welcome Baby Manel into the world. He is just turning 8 months, but is taking his role as CSP mascot very seriously.
