Lake Los Angeles Park Association



REGIONAL AND RURAL EDITION OF THE COUNTYWIDE PARKS NEEDS ASSESSMENT

The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation is conducting a comprehensive study to understand and document the need for regional facilities like beaches and lakes, natural areas and open spaces, regional parks, and trails, and the park needs of the rural parts of the County.

Unprecedented in scope and scale, the Los Angeles Countywide Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment is a comprehensive study of the diverse parks and recreation facilities throughout LA County’s cities and unincorporated communities. The Parks Needs Assessment gathered data to determine the scope, scale, and location of park need in Los Angeles County. Since its completion in 2016, the Parks Needs Assessment has been invaluable in informing planning and decision-making regarding funding for parks and recreation.

The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation is now working on an update to the Parks Needs Assessment called the Regional and Rural Edition. Specifically, this update will comprehensively identify, analyze, map, and document:

1.The need for Regional facilities, including beaches and lakes, natural areas and open spaces, regional parks, and trails; and

2.The park needs of Rural communities which are primarily located in the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and Santa Monica Mountains.
