Increasing Physical Activity in Under-Resourced Communities Through School-Based, Joint-Use Agreements, Los Angeles County, 2010–2012
The figure consists of a map of Los Angeles County showing the density of park area per 1,000 residents across the county and indicating where joint-use agreements are located in relation to these park areas. The largest concentration of park area 1,000 residents is along the western and northern sides of the county. One joint-use-agreement school site is in the western side of the county near Santa Monica, and 5 are in the northern side in Pasadena. Areas with the least amount of park space fall in the center of the county. Nineteen joint-use-agreement school sites are in this area, in Compton, El Monte, and downtown Los Angeles. In addition, there are 27 joint-use-agreement school sites in Pomona in the northeastern area of the county, an area with a moderate amount of park space.
