PAST PROJECTS

  • 90+ Luncheon 2016.

    This year, the Los Angeles Parks Foundation contribution to the Senior Citizens Section of the City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks Department, and the Los Angeles Federation of Senior Citizen Clubs resulted in a fabulous event. With a "Let the Good Times Roll" theme, staff were able to provide a wonderful Mardi Gras venue for over 240 seniors and numerous family guests, totaling roughly 400 people in attendance. The Los Angeles Parks Foundation is proud to sponsor this annual get together.

  • 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 was the renovation of the Rec Center restrooms, which were reopened summer 2017.

  • Ferraro Youth Fields Refurbishment.

    LAPF partnered with the LA84 Foundation and the Department of Recreation and Parks in the renovation of the Ferraro Fields in Griffith Park. The project replaced all four youth soccer fields with synthetic turf. With the refurbishment, 9.5 million gallons of water will be saved per year, and facility usage will increase from 7,360 youth to 170,960. The grand opening of the fields was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 31, 2015, and were opened for permitted play on November 7th. For permitting, please call the Municipal Sports Office at (818) 246-5613.

  • Tiffany & Co. Foundation Overlook.

    LAPF is pleased to announce the completion of the Tiffany & Co. Foundation Overlook in Griffith Park. LAPF received a grant in the amount of $100,000 from Tiffany & Co. Foundation for the maintenance and preservation of the overlook for an estimated term of 20 years. 

  • Palms Park Outdoor Fitness Zone.

    The Friends of West LA provided a donation to Palms Park for the installation of a new outdoor fitness zone. An informational sign along with five fitness pieces were installed: one wheelchair-accessible chest press machine, a pendulum ab and dip station, lat pull and vertical press combo, leg press, and an elliptical cross trainer. Up to 13 people can get in a workout at any given time. Outdoor fitness zones have become very popular across the City because of their convenience, and many park goers use the outdoor fitness equipment for their daily exercise and rely on them to meet their fitness goals. The ribbon cutting ceremony took place September 21st, 2015, with Councilmember Koretz.

  • Cabrillo Beach Pier Fishing Program.

    Thanks to a grant from the Port of Los Angeles, the Cabrillo Beach Pier Fishing Program was a success last summer and is currently running again. The program serves kids ages 5-16, and provides classroom instruction on local fishing advisories, hands-on pier fishing and a trip to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.
