We All Need Parks!

Unprecedented in scope and scale, the Countywide Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment quantifies the need for parks and recreation resources in Los Angeles County (Cities and Unincorporated Areas) and estimates the potential cost of meeting that need. Completed in May 2016, the final report is now available here.

The County Department of Parks and Recreation extends its deep appreciation to the thousands of individuals and dozens of organizations who contributed to the successful completion of the Parks Needs Assessment!

NEXT STEPS

On May 3, 2016 the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors received the Parks Needs Assessment and unanimously passed a motion to report back to the Board on or before June 21, 2016 with a final draft parks and recreation funding measure that the Board will consider for adoption and placement on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The structure of the ballot measure will reflect many of the findings of the Parks Needs Assessment.

To learn more about the outcome of the Park Needs Assessment and the proposed ballot measure, plan on attending one of the informational meetings in May!
