New Park Design From East Los Angeles High School Students

5:26 AM PDT on June 4, 2011

Ninth Grade Students from the East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy (ELARA) will be presenting their park designs. These students explored the look, feel, and layout of three, diverse parks across the city. Then they worked in teams to design their ideal parks. They designed and built wonderful models for their parks using a grain of rice as the scale.

ELARA mission is to promote urban planning. This is first major planning related project from the students.  Please join the students, faculty and myself as we discuss and foster the skills needed to create a better world.
