People for Parks (PFP) will open six new LA Community School Parks for public use during non-school hours. LAUSD youth enrichment specialists will offer diverse programming with emphases on play, physical activity, nutrition, outdoor learning and community building. Use of school playgrounds as park space is a creative, efficient, inexpensive way to provide a park within walking distance of LA residents. Community mobilization by PFP and parent participation will keep these spaces sustainable.
