TYPICAL TASKS
The Community Services Department promotes a sense of community by planning, organizing and coordinating services, programs, classes and events for families and individuals of all ages.

The parks and recreation division oversees the day-to-day operations of six parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities in the city and works closely with locally-based, private youth sports organizations to provide organizations such as Lawndale Youth Football and Lawndale Little League field space for practices and games.

  • USDA food assistance program
  • Daily lunch program and meals on wheels
  • Case management services
  • Senior transportation
  • Small bus excursions
  • Computer training
  • Monthly special events

Community events which bring families and individuals together several times per year continue to be a significant aspect of Lawndale living.
