Neighborhood Houses & Community Gardens
Neighborhood Houses provide residents opportunities to participate in free programs in their own neighborhood. The programs:
- Offer drop-in activities for children
- Provide services and programs offered by community groups
- Serve as a meeting place for community-based organizations
The Neighborhood Houses are located in Focus Neighborhoods, and serve as resource centers under the Neighborhood Improvement Strategy.

Palmdale’s Community Garden program provides residents who lack gardening space a plot for growing their own produce. The program encourages neighbors to work side by side, eat healthier, share their harvest, exercise, and participate in their neighborhood's success. Priority is given to residents living in multifamily housing. In partnership with the City, Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH) will help gardeners with programming, community events, and maintaining the gardens.

Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, ‘Let's stay here.’ And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.–Anne Raver
