The Trust for Public Land: Putting the Outdoors In Play

We’re partnering with the Trust for Public Land to renovate the outdoor area of Cleveland’s Lakeview Terrace to make it easier for kids to play and provide an place where the community can spend quality time outside together.


“By encouraging a healthy outdoor lifestyle, working to preserve our precious natural resources, and focusing on the various needs in our communities, the groups we support embody many of the values and traditions of L.L.Bean—integrity, service, respect, healthy living and a passion for the outdoors.”

Stephen Smith, President and CEO
