Brentwood Green at Brentwood Science Magnet

Brentwood Green was created by Brentwood residents to improve the playground and to provide a much needed park for the community. This park is used by the students during school and by Brentwood locals after school, weekends & holidays.

Brentwood Green is the pride and joy of South Brentwood. The Brentwood Green committee includes volunteers who tend and protect the themed mini gardens and grassy areas around the campus.

Brentwood Green became official after a joint use agreement was signed by LAUSD, the YMCA, and Brentwood Green.
The group that became Brentwood Green started to replace the seven acres of cracked asphalt thirteen years ago on the playground of the Brentwood Science Magnet School.
TreePeople, the DWP, and LAUSD gave Brentwood Green a special “Cool Schools†grant.

On January 23rd, 1999, more than 500 people attended our Groundbreaking/Treeplanting ceremony planting 88 trees.
Brentwood Green earned a number of grants, including the prestigious Anne and Kirk Douglas Playground Equipment Grant.

We planted over two hundred trees and created 15 mini gardens. With the help of Prop BB funds, we created the infrastructure for air conditioning and irrigation. A jogging track around the perimeter of the athletic field, sponsored by a Matching Grant from L.A. City, won an Environmental Award from the City for using Recycled Tires.
Brentwood Green has become a model for educational beautification projects – locally, nationally and internationally.

Editor’s note: Brentwood Green was created by generous Brentwood residents who have volunteered both their time and their money. Tax deductible gifts to Brentwood Green are welcome!

Sponsorship is appreciated. Some options:

BRENTWOOD GREEN ADOPT A TREE
All the street trees surrounding BSMS on Gretna Green, San Vicente, Bundy and Montana are available for adoption. Large trees $2,000. Small trees $1,000. Donations will be recognized with permanent plaques. Gifts will go to Maintenance Endowment Fund.

GATES TO THE PLAYGROUND AND PARK
We need sponsors for two new “Theme Entrances,†at the corner of San Vicente and Bundy and at the corner of San Vicente and Gretna Green. The entrances will announce the park and reach out to the community with an invitation to enter. These entrances will be monumental and dramatic in scale and visibility, with the use of trees and flowers mixed into the structure.

BRENTWOOD GREEN MAINTENANCE ENDOWMENT FUND
Gardens take constant care. Any gift is greatly appreciated.
