Los Angeles Green Schoolyards Initiative

The Trust for Public Land
Los Angeles County

Trust for Public Land (TPL) launched the Los Angeles Green Schoolyards Initiative (the Initiative) to build more resilient and equitable communities in Los Angeles County, especially for children and vulnerable populations. The Initiative aims to fundamentally change how public schoolyards are designed and built by applying community input and nature-based climate solutions that transform asphalt covered school playgrounds into verdant green schoolyards and opening them for public recreation outside of school hours.
