Compton Creek Natural Park at George Washington Elementary

Park Programs

Located alongside Compton Creek Bike Path in the City of Compton, this more than three acre park was built on an unused portion of adjacent George Washington Elementary. Designed through a collaborative process with teachers, school staff, community members, and other stakeholders, the new park features some of the natural habitat and plant communities found in the Compton Creek watershed, shade trees, walking paths, grassy areas, fitness equipment, picnic and seating areas, a multi-use amphitheater, parking, a community plaza, and interpretive signage.

In addition, the sustainably designed park includes environmentally friendly features such as natural retention basins and bioswales for stormwater treatment, and a 127,000 gallon underground cistern which will store rainwater to irrigate the park. The creekside park provides habitat for local and migratory birds, and an environmental learning area for the adjacent school.
