WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!
Give your ideas to improve the lower LA River and 72nd Street Equestrian Park:
The Lower LA River Trail Restoration & Access Gateway Project is a planning project that will develop conceptual designs to improve 1.3 miles of the Lower LA River Trail between Somerset Blvd. and the I-91 Freeway, and to elevate 72nd Street Equestrian Park as a proper access gateway that welcomes the community to the river. Key goals of the project are to address the blighted and dilapidated conditions along the trail; to promote investment in existing public facilities that will serve adjacent communities of need; and to be a catalyst and model for transformative project improvements within the river corridor.
This planning project will lay the groundwork for future implementation and is a step toward achieving the goals of increased access and recreation opportunities identified in the LA River Master Plan and the Lower LA River Revitalization Plan
The project will:
- Strengthen 72nd Street Arena’s connection to the river corridor
- Restore multi-use trail connectivity and access between Alondra & Somerset
- Include amenities such as upgraded fencing, civic art, and new signage
- Increase shade cover and improve landscaping areas with native planting
