Park Condition Assessment Report

The Parks Condition Assessment Report (PCA Report) is a summary of the site condition and recommended improvements for all parks owned by the Department of Recreation and Parks. It includes general information about each facility’s site history, building(s) information and recreational features.

The PCA Report covers assessments of over 16,000 acres of parkland at 559 park sites in the City of Los Angeles including regional parks, recreation centers, pools and bathhouses, senior centers, lakes, trails, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

The PCA Report was completed in July 2018.

Park Asset Naming

RAP recognizes that parks and recreational facilities are an essential and integral part of the communities they serve, and that the names of parks and recreational facilities, and park amenities within them, play a significant role in fostering identities in the surrounding communities. The Naming Policy establishes the criteria and requirements, and sets forth the guidelines and procedures, for the naming and renaming (collectively, “Naming”) of parks, recreational facilities, landmarks and any other assets determined appropriate by RAP (collectively referred to herein as “Park Assets”), which are owned, managed or controlled by RAP. The Naming Policy was adopted by the Board of Recreation and Park Commissioners (“Board”) on June 5, 2013 (Report No. 13-161).

All naming proposals shall be subject to the approval of the RAP Board.

All Park Asset Naming proposals must be submit a written proposal to the RAP Board of Commissioners for processing:

Public Artwork, Murals and Plaques

RAP regularly receives unsolicited proposals from outside entities for the installation of public art, murals, monuments, and memorial plaques on City parkland. RAP developed this Policy on Public Art, Murals, Monuments, and Memorial Plaques on Park Property (“Public Art Policy”), to establish guidelines and procedures for responding to public art proposals on a consistent basis. This Public Art Policy sets forth the protocols and criteria for the evaluation and approval of proposed public art projects, including the installation of murals on RAP structures, the construction of monuments, and the installation of memorial plaques (collectively referred to herein as, “Public Art”).

All Public Art proposals must complete and submit the Public Art Application, the required documentation as detailed in the Public Art Application and the Art Waiver Form. These items must be submitted to the RAP staff for processing:
