Our Mission

“The mission of the Lake Claire Community Land Trust is to acquire, maintain, and protect green space for neighborhood enhancement and education; and to provide a place for neighbors and friends to celebrate nature, community, and the arts.”


come visit the land trust!

The Lake Claire Community Land Trust is a neighborhood-based nonprofit dedicated to preserving greenspace and fostering community. Our 1.7 acres includes over 50 community garden beds, a playground, a stage and amphitheater, a sauna, a pond, a Children’s Garden, and a sanctuary for neighborhood celebrity Big Lou the Emu. People gather for festivals, drum circles, community work days, children’s birthday parties, and more. Several different communities of Land Trust lovers cross paths here for a rich cross-pollination of cultures. Every neighborhood needs a Land Trust!

The Land Trust is open during daylight hours. Please observe the closing time posted at all three entrances.

The Land Trust was created entirely by volunteers. Everyone who enjoys the Land Trust is invited to take part in this labor of love, from picking up litter to serving on a committee or the Board of Directors.
