Great Playground News from the California Legislature

Historic playgrounds in California are one step closer to preservation and protection. Assembly Bill 2701 was approved by the State Senate yesterday and now advances to the Governor’s desk for signature. This legislation is the first of its kind in the United States and could serve as a model for other jurisdictions seeking to create a legislative framework for the preservation of historically significant playgrounds. San Gabriel’s La Laguna Playground designed by Benjamin Dominguez in the 1960s served as the inspiration to move this bill forward.



For more information on the preservation of San Gabriel’s La Laguna playground visit Friends of La Laguna and read PlayGroundology’s post, Monster Mash – Conservation Wins the Day in San Gabriel, California.

  1. That’s SO great! I’m very glad to hear it.

    • Yes, this could be the beginning of a good thing. Hope all is well with you Michele. I was on regional CBC Radio this evening talking about PlayGroundology and talked about La Laguna and Dennis the Menace playgrounds.

      Cheers
      Alex
