CURRENT PROJECTS

  • Rustic Canyon Courtyard

    LAPF is currently involved in a project at Rustic Canyon to replace and paint the doors and windows throughout the courtyard.  Through community fundraising the courtyard will regain a bit of its historical elegance.

  • New Archery Range at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center

    Thanks to a generous donation from the Easton Sports Development Foundation II, Cheviot Hills Recreation Center  is getting a new, fully constructed archery range. LAPF is pleased to be working on this project, which has many enthusiastic archers awaiting its opening in early fall 2016.

  • Barrington Recreation Center

    Through LAPF's Adopt-A-Park program, The Archer School for Girls donated funds to Barrington Recreation Center which went towards installing all new vinyl fencing around the baseball field and batting cage, as well as brand new shade toppers and benches for the dugouts. We know the community will enjoy these upgrades for years to come!

  • Hazard Recreation Center Renovation

    Due to a generous donation made by USC, a multi-phase renovation is underway at Hazard Recreation Center. Phase 1, the refurbishment of the basketball and tennis courts, was completed May 1, 2015. The courts received all new surfacing, as well as two new additional half basketball courts. Phase 2 began in early May and was completed with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 31st, and included outdoor fitness zones and jogging paths. Phase 3, the new totlot playground, opened in early winter. The final phase is the renovation of the recreation center restrooms, which will be upgraded to ADA compliance in late summer 2016.

  • Cabrillo Beach Pier Fishing Program

    Thanks to a grant from the Port of LA, the Cabrillo Beach Pier Fishing Program was a success last summer and is currently running again. The program provides environmental education and classroom instruction on local fishing advisories as well as hands-on pier fishing experience for kids ages 5-16. 

  • 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.
