    Los Angeles Parks for People

    Parks are essential to healthy, sustainable communities, offering opportunities for fitness and recreation, economic revitalization, and civic engagement. But today, about half of Los Angeles County’s residents, mostly lower-income and communities of color, cannot access a park close-to-home. The goal of The Trust for Public Land’s Parks for People Program is to ensure that everyone can access a quality park within a 10-minute walk, or half-mile, from home.
