What is the park needs assessment?

The County of Los Angeles is conducting a countywide assessment of the need for parks and recreation in both cities and unincorporated areas. The goal of the Park Needs Assessment is to engage all communities within the County in a collaborative process to
gather data and input for future decision-making on parks and recreation. The Park Needs Assessment will increase our understanding of existing park and recreation assets, and help us to determine how to improve, expand, and make them more accessible. Specifically, the final
report will determine Study Areas and will identify, prioritize and outline costs for potential park projects within each Study Area. Download this PDF for more information.

Healthy, safe communities have thriving parks
