Green Access and Equity

The Policy Report Healthy Parks, Schools, and Communities: Mapping Green Access and Equity for the Los Angeles Region (2006) is a guide for creating healthy, livable communities for all. The Report provides a positive vision to:

Many parts of Los Angeles are park poor, and there are unfair park, school, and health disparities. Children of color disproportionately live in communities of concentrated poverty without places to play in parks and schools, with neither cars or transit to reach places for physical activity. These children disproportionately suffer from obesity and diabetes. Los Angeles has the chance to create healthy, livable communities for all.

The City Project presented the report to the Los Angeles City Council. View the presentation here.
