Lara Linear Walking Park
In 2011, FLTS spearheaded the comprehensive community engagement and fund development plan to build and design Lara Linear Park project in an underserved community in the City. The engagement included over thirteen community events throughout the City with over 1000 participants. FLTS was successful in securing a $4.9-million-dollar grant through Proposition 84 funding to construct the park which features extensive drought-tolerant, native plantings, a fitness block, bioswale and a 1 acre Lynwood Urban Farm. Lara Linear Park had its successful grand opening in October 2015. FLTS continues to work with our Park Advisory Committee that meets on a monthly basis to activate the park.
