Adopt-A-Park

Wells Fargo at Hollenbeck Park

The Los Angeles Parks Foundation invites local businesses, family foundations, schools, and corporate brands to partner with us to adopt one of our 450 city parks! The adoption donation will go to meet identified needs that can directly benefit a city park.

Past projects funded by park adoptions include a basketball court and baseball diamond resurfacing, funding for sports equipment and youth scholarships, program funding for dance and fitness classes, park benches, water fountains, and other needed improvements.

A park adoption begins with an investment of $25,000 depending on the size of the park.  The adoption extends over one year with the opportunity for a yearly renewal. The donor’s generous contribution is prominently acknowledged at the adopted park and celebrated with the local community.

Please contact Carolyn Ramsay for further information regarding the Adopt-A-Park program at (310) 472-1990 or carolyn@laparksfoundation.org. Thank you for helping us build community through our city parks. All donations are tax-deductible.


Current Park Adoptions for 2020-21

Mar Vista Park adopted by Windward School

After installing twenty new trees at Mar Vista Park as part of our inaugural LA Park Forest in 2020, additional funds from this adoption will allow us to add a dozen more in 2021. Each tree will be covered by a comprehensive two-year maintenance plan, and will be incorporated into students’ curriculum in science classes. 

 

Thank you to the Windward School for their generous support of Mar Vista Park and the surrounding community.
