Partnership Models for Increasing Park Access in Underserved Communities
January 19 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Parks provide opportunities for people to be physically active, spend time in nature, and connect socially with others. Yet over half of Los Angeles County’s population lives in neighborhoods without access to parks and open space with the majority of high-need areas being concentrated in low-income communities of color.
LA County has an opportunity to address these decades-long issues through increased resources provided by the passage of Measure A. But money alone is not enough to address inequity. This event will delve into the importance of partnership models to advance park equity in the LA region, including examining the recently opened Golden Age Park.
