Augustus Hawkins Nature Park

Located at Slauson and Compton, about 15 blocks away from Jefferson High, Augustus Hawkins Nature Park offers a welcome reprieve to the sounds and fury along these busy streets that include the hum of the Metro Blue Line along Alameda and Long Beach Boulevards.  

The Bureau of Sanitation has an excellent website for the entire park project. Please look at the drop-down menu of links to the plethora of resources and research gathered on this one site.  

We are hoping to build on this idea in the alleys and then into people's homes.
