FIRST5 LA – Tot Parks and Trails Projects

3626 56th St, Maywood, CA 90270

Opening Celebrated on, October 16, 2013

This park is designed to encourage young children 2-5 years of age and their families to exercise and play. For optimum health, children should be physically active at least 60 minutes daily. Studies have shown that children who are regularly exposed to nature have a better chance of living healthy and successful lives.

The park renovation project starting with the demolition of a rundown restroom in the back corner of the park which had become an area subject to illicit activities. Amigos de Los Rios then retrofit the park with play equipment – developmentally appropriate to children 0 to 5 and their families.

Play and have fun!
