We have a special place in our heart for this park.
Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
PlayCore is a proud sponsor of the City Parks Alliance Frontline Park program, and is excited to share that the El Sereno Arroyo playground in Los Angeles, CA was recently chosen as the Frontline Park for May. To an underserved community that previously had no nearby facilities, the El Sereno Arroyo playground is a vibrant destination for the many nearby residents.
The surrounding community has one of the largest concentrations of children under the age of five in the county, but lacks playgrounds and outdoor recreation spaces. As with many urban areas, land to create new ones is in short supply. The City of Los Angeles saw a fantastic opportunity to turn the lot (an unused right-of-way owned by the California Department of Transportation) into a much-needed recreation space for children and families.
In addition to the playground, the space includes grassy areas, a fitness area for adults that enables them to supervise children at play while working out, several walking paths, picnic tables, mosaic art, decorative fencing, and a garden.
Anne-Marie Spencer, Corporate VP of Marketing for PlayCore states, "We have a special place in our heart for this park, we were able to participate in the revitalization in partnership with our GameTime brand, The Trust for Public Land, NRPA, and many other engaged stakeholders. We included the space in our latest PlayCore video, because we were so touched by the passion of the city and the joy that the space has brought to local families."
