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.

UpComing EVENTS

Webster, Jess Goggans & The Foothill Brothers at the Land Trust!

Webster is a popular local band formed here in the neighborhood in 2005, with a history of playing at Candler Park Festivals and the Lake Claire Community Land Trust. Over the past few years the band has hosted an annual fundraiser for the Land Trust, with proceeds donated to our beloved non-profit community property.

On Saturday, August 24, starting at 4:00 pm, three excellent bands will perform in support of the Land Trust. Webster will headline the bill, with the Jess Goggans Band and the Foothill Brothers opening the festivities. It promises to be a fun-filled kid-friendly event with wonderful music and friendly neighbors. Food and beverages will be available. There is a $5 suggested donation and kids enter free.
