Cheremoya Avenue Elementary School Outdoor Learning Center

The Outdoor Learning Center

A Beautiful Place To Learn

The Outdoor Learning Center at Cheremoya is an incredible outdoor learning and play space that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Dedicated in 2016, the area includes a dry creek bed and a collection of native plants in addition to much-needed green space for students to enjoy. A labor of love and joint effort of the Cheremoya Foundation, EnrichLA, community volunteers, and LAUSD, the area is maintained with the skill and knowledgeable care of  Angela Gygi on behalf of The Hollywood Orchard. Angela's expertise, advocacy, and unwavering support have given Cheremoya Avenue Elementary a priceless and irreplaceable gift.

In 2022, the garden became home to a memorial in honor of long-term Cheremoya teacher Mr. Davis. So that his memory would not be forgotten, a tree was planted with the hope that it would provide beauty and comfort at Cheremoya the same way Mr. Davis did during his 20 years of service to the school.


In 2024, The Outdoor Learning Center was designated a Monarch Way Station. During the spring and summer, monarchs can be seen in abundance, flying in and out of the beautiful native gardens.
