Los Angeles’s woeful lack of park space is well-documented. A recent parks-needs assessment found that more than half of LA County residents do not live within walking distance of a park. Moreover, the parks that currently exist are in need of serious renovation. The assessment found that infrastructure in more than three-quarters of county parks is in fair or poor condition.
Next month, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will consider putting a parcel tax on the ballot that could be used to raise funds for open, green spaces—important considering that a recent parks-needs assessment conducted at the behest of the board found that 51 percent of county residents don’t live within a 10-minute walk (half a mile) of a park.
