Dia De Los Niños / Childrens Day

Come and join us at the park that kids built! There’s a great Dia De Los Niños / Childrens Day event going on organized by the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust and we’ll be providing the art project.

Come out and have your child (or you!) create your own book. Tell your story, your favorite things, your goals and dreams.

This is the park that children built. Literally. 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.

When: Sunday, May 1
Time: 12:00pm – 4:00pm

1956 Estrella Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90007
