Reclaiming the alleys in Boyle Heights

For many kids in park-poor communities like Boyle Heights, not having a backyard to play in sometimes means not playing at all.  But a community effort to convert blighted areas into play zones, looking at alleys as possible playgrounds and community gathering places.  “They have no park nearby, and in the alleyway there were too many holes. That’s why we decided to help with the alley, so they would have a place to play near their houses.”  Read about this neighborhood beautification project on Boyle Heights Beat.
