The Regional Analysis of the 2021 Regional and Rural Edition focuses on Los Angeles County’s diverse beaches and lakes, open spaces and natural areas, regional parks, and trails.

The Regional Analysis evaluates park access and need considerations related to regional parks and open spaces that are intended to serve broad geographical areas of the County. The primary goal is for all Angelenos to have access to regional parks and open spaces, and that park resources are provided equitably among all regional facilities.

Regional Study Areas

The eleven Regional Study Areas are based on the Planning Areas established in the Los Angeles County General Plan which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in October 2015. Aligning with the boundaries of these Planning Areas helps LA County Parks to better coordinate future planning efforts with other County departments.
