A collaboration between the county’s Department of Parks and Recreation, Sheriff’s Department, Department of Public Health, and other community and social services agencies, Parks After Dark focuses on areas in L.A. County where high rates of violence and obesity go hand-in-hand.
Do you have a story about how a park or recreation program has improved a person or community?
The Jesse Owens Community Regional Park's Pool offers water aerobics. The low impact exercise provides a great way to get healthy and have fun!
We all strive to be healthy and fit. But for many Americans, finding a place to exercise can prove more of a challenge than the workout itself. The Trust for Public Land's Fitness Zone® program provides free outdoor fitness equipment in local parks—often in neighborhoods where gym memberships are too pricey to be practical. With your support, we're empowering communities with an innovative new resource in the fight against obesity.
