Dayton Heights Elementary School playground expanded

Students at Dayton Heights Elementary School will be safer and healthier thanks to the new expansion of their playground. This afternoon I joined community members to celebrate the playground’s completion. Previously, students had to cross the street to use a nearby playground, but funding from Prop K and the joint efforts of the City of Los Angeles and LAUSD helped to convert an adjacent dirt lot to a soccer field and jungle gym. The park will also be available for community use on weekends and during non-school operation hours on weekdays.
