The La Mesa Park and Recreation Foundation facilitates quality projects and programs that provide activities to strengthen community and family bonds as well as fosters pride in La Mesa and its parks.

Vivid Descriptions of Success

We achieve success by doing the following:
  • We are a model foundation for community activism
  • We celebrate our parks
  • We will engage community volunteers and efficiently use community resources and partnerships

The Foundation is open to participation in projects of interest in East County, but we will primarily focus our capital campaign activity on La Mesa projects.


Our success is made possible by participation from individuals and organizations committed to making La Mesa a better place to live, work, and play. Please join our Pacesetter Donors in helping to provide community enhancing projects and programs. Donate now and see your dollars at work.
