What is Estrella Park? (From their website)

1956 ESTRELLA AVE., LOS ANGELES, CA 90007

Estrella Park today

In 1982, a garbage-strewn lot in South Los Angeles was converted into an oasis of open space in a neighborhood that had none. The effort was led by a group of fifth- and sixth-graders and their teachers at Norwood Street Elementary School.

For years, the vacant lot on Estrella Avenue had been used as a junkyard for auto repairs and waste. Meanwhile, area families yearned for a safe place to play, relax and socialize. A campaign launched by the schoolchildren attracted the support of a local business leader and the California Community Foundation, and together they raised enough money to create a park.

But two decades later the lot had again fallen into disrepair. Some of the facilities were deemed health and safety hazards, and the community had all but abandoned hope for the land. In 2004, the Neighborhood Land Trust was deeded the property and began working with Esperanza Community Housing Corporation and residents to reclaim the park.

Community members developed a sustainable plan for the park’s future and generous grants from the S. Mark Taper Foundation and The Annenberg Foundation made a complete refurbishment possible. In 2006, the park reopened and received a warm welcome from the community.

Since then, Estrella Park has been a hub of activity with tremendous growth in community involvement and an ever-increasing sense of pride. The Neighborhood Land Trust has organized a series of ongoing programs for youth and adults including yoga, kickboxing, aerobics, mural design, photography and creative writing classes.
