The mandate of Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) is to make Lagos greener and healthier through the creation and maintenance of functional and operational parks and gardens, planting and maintenance of trees.
LASPARK was established to take over the assignment of the greening initiative of the State Government from the Conservation and Ecology Department of the Ministry of the Environment (Office of the Environmental Services) by the enactment of Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency Law No. 13, 2011 and took off July 2012.
The Agency in its few years of existence has further consolidated on the huge achievements of the Ministry of the Environment with the establishment of more gardens and parks. Till date 327 parks and gardens have been captured by the Agency and maintained statewide. Out of which 212 were established by the state government, 85 by private concerns and 31 established in schools.
