Long Beach Parks and Open Space Accessibility Reports and Discussion. Are you a fan of Long Beach parks, interested in keeping them clean, safe and accessible to all?

The Long Beach Area League of Women Voters invites League members and the general public to a free event to discuss Park and Open Space Accessibility, and the issues involved.

Guest speaker is Randy Zarn, Executive Director of nonprofit Partner of Parks, which focuses on supporting development, maintenance, and enhancement of park asset and recreation programs in Long Beach through fundraising, education, and advocacy.

League of Women Voters member Lois Ledger will provide information about some of the trouble issues that have been reported to the city, ranging from trash in parks to damage to park amenities and illegally dumped items, and how they have been addressed.

League member Lisa Swanson, a landscape architect, will share the results of a Los Angeles Countywide Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment, released in May 2016, which established a new way to understand and think about parks, recreation and open space. Swanson will briefly discuss the plan in general and also the Long Beach parks analysis.

We hope you will join us to celebrate the beautiful parks in Long Beach and help us plan for the future.
