Compton Creek Natural Park
This creekside park in a highly urbanized area provides school kids and the surrounding neighborhood a multi-sensory natural park experience that layers history, natural science and art. The new community gardens invites elementary school students and community gardeners to plant their own fruits and vegetables, and nutrition and cooking workshops will help them get the most out of their own produce. Privately operated by the LA Conservation Corps, the Park hopes to expand hours of operation and community programs to serve more people.
