  • Girls Play LA Initiative

    The City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department has launched the Girls Play LA Initiative to encourage, promote, and support sports programs and movement classes specifically for girls and young women.  Please donate today.

  • Wellness Walks

    Through our popular Wellness Walks initiative, we fund and install sturdy, state-of-the-art, fitness equipment so that people can work out in the open air on their own schedule throughout the day, year-round.  The equipment stations are spread out along perimeter walking paths and offer a complete work-out.  People have so much fun working out that it inspires others to try it.  Our primary focus for Wellness Walks is low-income neighborhoods where private health clubs don’t exist.  

  • Franklin Canyon Orange Grove

    In 2012, The Department of Recreation and Parks secured a lease from the Department of Water and Power, as a result of LAPF obtaining a private donation from the David Bohnett Foundation for the initial restoration, maintenance and enchancement of the grove. Thanks to continued generous donations from David Bohnett Foundation and City National Bank, LAPF has partnered with local non-profit organization Food Forward to harvest the grove since 2013. In the summer of 2015, LAPF purchased a small electric vehicle to assist with the hauling of fruit during harvest events. The 2015-2016 harvest season yielded 22,571 pounds of fruit, 100% of which was donated to local food banks.
